Summer Reading Book Club for High School Students
The Metuchen Public Library, 480 Middlesex Avenue, will host a book club for interested high school students who are Metuchen residents. The group will meet on two Wednesdays (July 6 and July 20) from 7:30 PM until 8:30 PM to discuss Carlos Eire’s Waiting for Snow in Havana, a National Book Award winner. In 1962, the author’s world changed forever when he and his brother were among the 14,000 children airlifted off the island of Cuba in what was to be known as Operation Peter Pan. In this memoir, Eire reveals an exotic, magical Cuba and his eccentric but loving family. Written like a noveL, this account of Eire’s early life on the island is enlightening, often funny and certainly thought-provoking. The book club will include discussion and varied activities that enhance the book. A free copy of the book will be given out at the club’s first session to all participants. Sign up by writing the Young Adult Librarian at KLiss@Lmxac.org, by calling 732.632.8526 or by visiting the Library.
