The club will meet at the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave.
Walk Two Moons is the November book selection.
Children between the ages of 8-11 and their parents or guardians are welcome to attend. Children and adults are asked to read the book before coming to the book club.
In the book, 13-year-old Salamanca Tree Hiddle, proud of her country roots and the “Indian-ness in her blood,” travels from Ohio to Idaho with her eccentric grandparents.
Along the way, she tells them the story of Phoebe Winterbottom, who received mysterious messages, met a “potential lunatic” and whose mother disappeared.
Beneath Phoebe’s stories is told Salamanca’s own story and that of her mother, who left one April morning for Idaho, promising to return before the tulips bloomed.
Her mother has not returned, and the trip to Idaho takes on a growing urgency as Salamanca hopes to get to Idaho in time for her mother’s birthday and bring her back, despite her father’s warning that she is fishing in the air.
The Sequim Library’s Kids’ Book Club, led by youth services librarian Antonia Krupicka-Smith, meets the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. through December.
Parents and guardians are encouraged to read the books with their children and begin the discussion at home. Preregistration is not required.
The upcoming book selection for December is Hatchet, by Gary Paulsen.
Copies of Walk Two Moons and other books are available at the Sequim Library and can be requested online through the North Olympic Library Systems catalog at www.nols.org.
