Totally Tweens: Comics & Cookies: The Golden Hour

January 3 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Thursday, January 26, 2023 –4:00pm to 5:00pm

Storytime Room

Tweens are invited to a monthly meet-up to discuss graphic novels. We’ll be talking about a different book each month and doing activities based on them. Plus, cookies will be served!

This month we will discuss the All Iowa Reads pick for kids, The Golden Hour by Niki Smith. After witnessing gun violence at school, Manuel struggles with anxiety but his cell phone camera helps him find anchors when he dissociates, and an unexpected friendship opens up new possibilities.

All Iowa Reads, established in 2003, is a program of the State Library of Iowa. Three books (one each for adults, teens, and kids), are selected by a committee of librarians each year. Iowans are encouraged to come together in their communities to collectively read and talk about the same book title over the course of a calendar year.

Los preadolescentes están invitados a una reunión mensual para hablar sobre novelas gráficas. Estaremos hablando de un libro diferente cada mes y haciendo actividades basadas en ellos. ¡Además, se servirán galletas!

“All Iowa Reads ””爱荷华人在读书“是爱荷华州立图书馆开始于2003年的阅读促进项目。每年由图书馆员委员会选出三本年度图书,成人、青少年和儿童各一本,并鼓励爱荷华人一起阅读和讨论。
