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.
The Art of Taxidermy by Sharon Kernot
Lottie collects dead creatures and lovingly cares for them, hoping to preserve them, to save them from disintegration. Her father understands—Lottie has a scientific mind, he thinks. Her aunt wants it to stop, and she goes to cruel lengths to make sure it does.
And her mother? Lottie’s mother died long ago. And Lottie is searching for a way to be close to her.
The Art of Taxidermy is a heartbreaking verse novel exploring love and death, grief and beauty, and the ways we try to make sense of it all.
