We are partnering with the All Of Us Express Children's Theatre this month to discuss the classic Lois Lowry book, Number the Stars. All Of Us Express will perform a stage adaptation of this title at the Hannah Community Center on February 3rd & 10th at 7 p.m. and February 4th & 11th at 2 and 4:30 p.m. The first 15 participants to sign up will also receive a free ticket to a performance along with their copy of the book!

Number the Stars is the story of ten year old Annemarie Johansen and her family as they witness the Danish resistance to German troops' relocation of the Jewish population in Denmark in 1943. When they take in Annemarie's Jewish friend, they must conceal her true identity and eventually make their way across the sea to Sweden and safety.

Join us to discuss this book and enjoy bagels from Panera. The first 15 to register for Books & Bagels at the library will receive a free copy of the book.

Immediately prior to January's Books & Bagels session, we will also be holding a script reading and discussion with cast and crew from All Of Us Express. Be sure to join us at 1:00 p.m. for this unique opportunity!

Books & Bagels is a book discussion group for 4th-6th graders. Thank you to Panera Bread of Frandor for providing the bagels, and many thanks to a generous, anonymous donor for providing copies of Books & Bagels titles to the first 15 program participants.
