Wallingford Reads YA Book Club: Scythe by Neal Shusterman
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

All teens and adults are welcome at this book discussion where we discuss Young Adult Literature. Lauren Rumi.  Copies of the book are available at the Information Desk.

A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery: humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now Scythes are the only ones who can end life—and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control.

Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe—a role that neither wants. These teens must master the “art” of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.

Scythe is the first novel of a thrilling new series by National Book Award–winning author Neal Shusterman in which Citra and Rowan learn that a perfect world comes only with a heavy price.

WECARE workshop: Start signing!
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

Give your students a hand in spelling, vocabulary, and other skills by introducing them to sign language. Louise (Roberge) Donovan; teacher and owner for 34 years of Roberge Early Learning Center in Cromwell, will teach you some sign language skills & techniques incorporated through play and music to use with your students. Signing with babies can help them communicate before they can talk and two, three- and four-year-olds usually find signing easy and entertaining because it taps into their natural tendency to communicate using their bodies. Studies have shown that those who were introduced to American Sign Language (ASL) words, such as signs for the weather, colors, numbers, and feelings, did better on vocabulary tests than their peers. Sign language has the potential to encourage communication and prevent melt downs.

Program begins at 6pm preceded by a light meal at 5:30 pm for those who register. Please use Registration form through Park and Recreation Dept. Certificates of attendance will be provided for those requiring them.
