SCARSDALE, N.Y. – Join the Scarsdale Public Library each month for a lively conversation on books for young readers at the "Not Your Kids Book Club" Wednesdays from 1-2 p.m. in the library’s Jaffin Room.
Parents, writers, educators and all children’s book enthusiasts are welcome. Sessions are hosted by children’s author Sheela Chari.
The first meeting of 2016 will take place Wednesday, Jan. 13, with “Breaking Stalin’s Nose” by Eugene Yelchin. Sasha Zalchik has known the laws of the Soviet Young Pioneers since the age of 6. But now that it is finally time to join the Young Pioneers, the day that Sasha has awaited for so long, everything seems to go awry. He breaks a classmate’s glasses with a snowball. He accidentally damages a bust of Stalin in the school hallway. And worst of all, his father, the best Communist he knows, was arrested just last night.
On Wednesday, Feb. 10, the club will review “Endangered” by Eliot Schrefer. On Wednesday, March 16, members will discuss “The Nest” by Kenneth Oppel.
