Chapter & Verse is a national book club for children’s literature enthusiasts who wish to discuss children’s and young adult fiction, nonfiction, picture books, and poetry. They meet the third Thursday of every month at Red Balloon and are sponsored by Winding Oak.
In March, we'll discuss two books about dance and matters of the spirit: A Time to Danceby Padma Venkatraman and José: Born to Dance by Susannah Reich, illustrated by Raúl Colón. Peg Leg Bates is referred to in Padma's book: you might wish to read Knockin' on Wood: Starring Peg Leg Bates by Lynne Barason as well. Do you have favorite books about dance or disability to share with your discussion group? You may wish to talk about the paucity of books on faith and religion published in mainstream children's literature. And how do these books add to the depth of diversity?
DATE: Thursday, Mar 19 TIME: 6:30 - 8:00 pm PLACE: Red Balloon Bookshop (adicionado a partir de IndieBound)… (mais)
