Bookworms Middle Grade Book Club
December 9 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm| Free
Being a Bookworm has never been so fun! Get together with your friends at this middle grade book club to discuss this month’s book, Sweep: The Story of a Girl and Her Monster by Jonathan Auxier and participate in a book themed game or craft! This book club is ideal for Grades 4th through 6th.
From Goodreads: “For nearly a century, Victorian London relied on “climbing boys”–orphans owned by chimney sweeps–to clean flues and protect homes from fire. The work was hard, thankless and brutally dangerous. Eleven-year-old Nan Sparrow is quite possibly the best climber who ever lived–and a girl. With her wits and will, she’s managed to beat the deadly odds time and time again.
But when Nan gets stuck in a deadly chimney fire, she fears her time has come. Instead, she wakes to find herself in an abandoned attic. And she is not alone. Huddled in the corner is a mysterious creature–a golem–made from ash and coal. This is the creature that saved her from the fire.
Sweep is the story of a girl and her monster. Together, these two outcasts carve out a life together–saving one another in the process.”
