You're invited to the next CLASC New Book Seminar!

Date: Tuesday, February 28, 2017
Time: 10:00am to Noon
Place: Sachem Public Library
150 Holbrook Road, Holbrook NY

It's awards season so join us for a group discussion of an award-winner.  What will the title be?  Well, we're not sure yet.

If the Newbery medalist was not discussed at the SCLS Mock Newbery (see list below) on January 5, then that will be our group discussion title.  However, if the Newbery medalist was discussed, our group title will be the book that won the Coretta Scott King Award.

To find out what our group discussion Title will be, tune in to the ALA awards webcast on Monday, January 23 beginning at 8:00am.

Following the group discussion, bring a new and noteworthy fiction title that reflects diversity in its themes or characters to flashtalk to the group.

RSVP by February 24 to Marybeth Kozikowski, Marybeth.kozikowski@sachemlibrary.org.  Please include the title of the book you will flashtalk to avoid duplication.
