Junior Historians Summer Reading Club
The Junior Historians Summer Reading Club invites youth who love history and want to learn more about the past to engage in a monthly “coffee shop-style” book discussion with Library and Museum staff. Each month we will select a different book and ask students to read the book and write questions before attending the discussion. During the reading club, we will discuss key themes from the book, examine original records related to the event, and consider how the book adds to our understanding of the past. As reading ability is unique to each student, we have not set an age range set for our summer reading program.
If your child is capable of reading, understanding, and discussing the books on our reading list, they are welcome to join. Book selections are: Killer Angels by Michael Shaara (June), All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque (July), and Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood by Marjane Satrapi (August).
Event begins at 4:00 p.m. and will end at 6:00 p.m. Admission to the museum is not included.
E-TICKET MUST BE PRESENTED FOR ENTRY (printed or on digital device).
