Big Little Lit
June 15 :11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Library Director Rachel Davis was TML’s Children’s Librarian for 27 years. Join her at this monthly book group for adults, featuring outstanding literature for children. The same qualities that make an excellent book for adults are also true for books written for children– complex, beautifully written stories that speak to the universality of human experience. The only difference is that children’s literature is firmly grounded in the immediacy of the experience of childhood. We were all children once–come explore childhood again as Rachel leads a monthly discussion on some of her favorite books. All books can be requested through Minerva, the library’s online catalog.
This month’s book selection is A Single Shard by Linda Sue Park.
The Newbery Medal-winning tale of an orphan boy whose dream of becoming a master potter leads to unforeseen adventure in ancient Korea.
Tree-ear is an orphan boy in a 12th-century Korean village renowned for its ceramics. When he accidentally breaks a delicate piece of pottery, he volunteers to work to pay for the damage. Putting aside his own dreams, Tree-ear resolves to serve the master potter by embarking on a difficult and dangerous journey, little knowing that it will change his life forever.
