The Book to Art Club combines reading, discussion, and art-making.

Participants will read the selected book, then create projects inspired by the reading during the discussion to further engage with the literature.  The process of making is more important than the final product! 

Book club book copies may be picked up at Mead Public Library's 1st floor desk one month before the discussion.  Art supplies will be provided, but participants may bring their own materials.  Follow us on GoodreadsPinterest!, and Facebook.  See what is happening with other Book to Art Clubs around the world on The Book to Art Club Blog.  Mead discussion groups are free, funded by the Friends of the Library.  The Book to Art Club was created by the Library as Incubator Project.

Join us for this special discussion at Bookworm Gardens with a project led by Bookworm Gardens' staff.

"Wildwood" by Colin Meloy
Theme: Forest


The first book in the epic middle-grade fantasy series full of magic, wonder, and danger—nothing less than an American Narnia—from Colin Meloy, lead singer of the highly celebrated band the Decemberists, and Carson Ellis, the acclaimed illustrator of the New York Times bestselling The Mysterious Benedict Society.

Prue McKeel's life is ordinary. At least until her brother is abducted by a murder of crows and taken to the Impassable Wilderness, a dense, tangled forest on the edge of Portland. No one's ever gone in—or at least returned to tell of it.

So begins an adventure that will take Prue and her friend Curtis deep into the Impassable Wilderness. There they uncover a secret world in the midst of violent upheaval—a world full of warring creatures, peaceable mystics, and powerful figures with the darkest intentions. And what begins as a rescue mission becomes something much greater, as the two friends find themselves entwined in a struggle for the very freedom of this wilderness. A wilderness the locals call Wildwood.
