For the September Book Chat, the Hendrick Hudson Free Library welcomes local author Melissa Sarno (Just Under the Clouds, A Swirl of Ocean) to discuss her debut middle grade book, Just Under the Clouds. In the book, middle schooler Cora, along with her mother and younger sister, find themselves homeless after the death of Cora?s father. The book's themes on the importance of family, how we define a home, and finding a place to belong will surely inspire questions and opinions. Program will be held outside on the library's front lawn. For children grades 4 and up. All who participate must wear a mask. Seating will be set up that practices social distancing. Register via LocalHop or by calling the children's desk (914) 739-5654 ext. 307. Once registered, email mvictoria@wlsmail.org to schedule a curbside pick-up of your FREE copy of the book. If inclement weather occurs, the group will meet inside in the Constance Dyckman Community Room where everyone can safely follow social distancing guidelines.
