This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 27-01-2015 27-01-2015 15 Greenlight Young Readers Book Group Led by Greenlight bookseller Grace, this book group is geared toward kids ages 8 to 14, and reads great contemporary and classic chapter books. Parents are welcome (but not required) to attend, and pizza is served. For January, the group reads and discusses John Coyne’s novel The Terrible Thing That Happened to Barnaby Brocket, illustrated by Oliver Jeffers. Barnaby Brocket is an ordinary 8-year-old boy in most ways, but he was born different in one important way: he floats. Unlike everyone else, Barnaby does not obey the law of gravity. His parents, who have a horror of being noticed, want desperately for Barnaby to be normal, but he can't help who he is. And when the unthinkable happens, Barnaby finds himself on a journey that takes him all over the world. From Brazil to New York, Canada to Ireland, and even to space, the floating boy meets all sorts of different people—and discovers who he really is along the way. This whimsical novel will delight middle graders, and make readers of all ages question the meaning of normal. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=165452 Greenlight Bookstore true DD/MM/YYYY
