Books & Bagels October 2014

Sat, 10/04/2014 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm
ELPL 2.0 Maker Studio - Downtown East Lansing

Register online for ELPL's first Books & Bagels of 2014!  This month the group will be reading and discussing Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson.  Touching and powerful, this book chronicles Woodson's life as she searches for her place in the world.  Raised in South Carolina and New York, she always felt halfway home in each place. In vivid poems, she shares what it was like to grow up as an African American in the 1960s and 1970s, living with the remnants of Jim Crow and her growing awareness of the Civil Rights movement.  This program is part of MSU Project 60/50, a yearlong community conversation on human and civil rights and carries on the theme of our One Book, One Community reads.

The first 15 participants to register will receive a free copy of Brown Girl Dreaming.

This session of Books & Bagels will be held at the library's new popup makerspace in downtown East Lansing.  Located on the second floor of the Marriott at University Place, the ELPL 2.0 Maker Studio offers a unique programming location for library and community events.  

Join us October 4 at 2pm for this unique Books & Bagels event!  As always, Books & Bagels is for children in grades 4-6.  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 program participants.
