Book to Art Club
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.
Notes: We will be discussing January LaVoy's narration of the audiobook in addition to the story. Please listen to at least the first chapter. If you do not have a CD player, you can listen to the first chapter on Overdrive/Libby, even if there is a waiting list.
We will be creating doors for our projects using supplies from home.
The Ten Thousand Doors of January
In a sprawling mansion filled with peculiar treasures, January Scaller is a curiosity herself. As the ward of the wealthy Mr. Locke, she feels little different from the artifacts that decorate the halls: carefully maintained, largely ignored, and utterly out of place.
Then she finds a strange book. A book that carries the scent of other worlds, and tells a tale of secret doors, of love, adventure and danger. Each page turn reveals impossible truths about the world and January discovers a story increasingly entwined with her own.
