Torly Kid store in Tribeca is hosting their monthly bookclub on February 1st and kids are invited to this fun evening. The store hosts this monthly event on the first Wednesday of the month. They ask that kids read the book ahead of time as they will be discussing the book at the book club through projects and crafts.
This months book is Miss E. by Brian Herberger. Being the new kid in town is a way of life for Bets, but moving to California in 1967 is different. Her father leaves for the war in Vietnam, her history teacher gives an assignment that has the whole school searching for clues, and the town’s most mysterious resident shares a secret with Bets that has been hidden away for decades. When a peaceful protest spins out of control, Bets is forced to reconsider how she feels about the war her father is fighting and her own role in events taking place much closer to home.
