READ. TALK. MAKE.
The Book to Art Club combines book discussion with hands-on project making to engage further with literature.
Join the Book to Art Club for a Skype book discussion as we make hands-on projects at home, but together virtually, and show and share through digital images. Registration is required so that we can connect with you through Skype.
Registrants will be notified when club copies are available of the books for pickup at the library's first floor help desk. Digital book copies may be available through Overdrive/Libby, Hoopla or RB Digital. We will provide optional maker kits for virtual discussions which meet through Skype.
*Please sign up for a free Skype account in advance and register with your mobile phone number AND email address so we can add you to the Skype discussion group.*
Mead discussion groups are free, funded by the Friends of Mead Public Library. The Book to Art Club was created by the Library as Incubator Project.
My Favorite Thing is Monsters, Vol. 1 by Emil Ferris
Set against the tumultuous political backdrop of late ’60s Chicago, My Favorite Thing Is Monsters is the fictional graphic diary of 10-year-old Karen Reyes, filled with B-movie horror and pulp monster magazines iconography. Karen Reyes tries to solve the murder of her enigmatic upstairs neighbor, Anka Silverberg, a holocaust survivor, while the interconnected stories of those around her unfold. When Karen’s investigation takes us back to Anka’s life in Nazi Germany, the reader discovers how the personal, the political, the past, and the present converge. Full-color illustrations throughout.
