Medford Public Library invites 2nd and 3rd graders to join us each month. Snack will be provided. Please read the book in advance of book club!
This month we will be discussing Yona Zeldis McDonough's What Was the Underground Railroad?:
No one knows where the term Underground Railroad came from - there were no trains or tracks, only "conductors" who helped escaping slaves to freedom. Including real stories about "passengers" on the "Railroad," this book chronicles slaves' close calls with bounty hunters, exhausting struggles on the road, and what they sacrificed for freedom. With 80 black-and-white illustrations throughout and a sixteen-page black-and-white photo insert, the Underground Railroad comes alive!
