Wednesday Lit Talk: "Zero Tolerance"

Event date: 
Wednesday, May 11, 2016 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

A zero-tolerance policy of no weapons at Sierra's school does not excuse her mistake of bringing a paring knife in her lunch bag. Sierra is suspended when she admits the error to the school principal, causing a range of opinions and emotions from serious to humorous. Regina reads a passage from "Zero Tolerance" by Claudia Mills on Wednesday, May 11 at 5:00 p.m. and encourages a lively discussion with listeners from nine to 14 years old and their families.

Wednesday Lit Talk: "Time Fetch"

Event date: 
Wednesday, May 4, 2016 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

When eighth-grader Edward and three of his science classmates touch what they think is a rock, they cause a rip in the fabric of space and time. Since the fetch, as it is called, keeps the boundaries between universes intact, the four students must work together to keep space from collapsing around them. Regina reads a passage from "Time Fetch" by Amy Herrick on Wednesday, May 4 at 5:00 p.m. and encourages a lively discussion with listeners from nine to 14 years old and their families.

Author Panel: Real Life, Real Issues for Kids in School

Event date: 
Saturday, May 14, 2016 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

On Saturday, May 14 at 1:00 p.m., four fabulous authors present their thoughts, ideas, and books about elementary and middle school with kids and families at Bank Street Book Store. Join us for a terrific panel discussion that considers a wonderful, but slightly fragile, time of life -- warts and all. The elementary and middle school years are loaded with growth, learning, and excitement, but it is a time that asks a lot of the students who are part of this emotionally charged and changing world. Hear from these talented writers as they share excerpts from their books as well as their own personal experiences and memories: Erin Entrada Kelly, Laura Shovan, Melanie Conklin, and Dana Alison Levy. Authors will sign books after the event.
