We will meet in the Book Club Room to discuss "Almost Home" by Joan Bauer. Sixth-grader Sugar Mae Cole's story effectively reveals the everyday fears and humiliations suffered by homeless children. Bauer's trademark humor lightens the serious subject matter, while Sugar's frank honesty gives young readers a glimpse at a situation affecting a growing number of children. This story explores a timely issue through the eyes of a resilient girl - the kind of heroine so familiar to Bauer's fans. Bauer brings moments of levity and hopefulness to the story, which she peppers with a cast of thoughtfully crafted personalities. Registration is required and begins Tuesday, June 24, online, in person, or by calling (317) 844-3363. Space is limited, so register early! This program is for girls entering grades 4-6 and their mothers.
