Read. Talk. Make.

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.

"The Girl from Everywhere" by Heidi Heilig
Theme: Maps, Travel

Nix has spent her entire life aboard her father’s ship, sailing across the centuries, across the world, across myth and imagination.

As long as her father has a map for it, he can sail to any time, any place, real or imagined: nineteenth-century China, the land from One Thousand and One Nights, a mythic version of Africa. Along the way they have found crewmates and friends, and even a disarming thief who could come to mean much more to Nix.

But the end to it all looms closer every day.

Her father is obsessed with obtaining the one map, 1868 Honolulu, that could take him back to his lost love, Nix’s mother. Even though getting it—and going there—could erase Nix’s very existence.

For the first time, Nix is entering unknown waters.

She could find herself, find her family, find her own fantastical ability, her own epic love.

Or she could disappear.
