KidsReading Club: The Witch Boy Graphic Novel

Clear

Saturday, 11:00 am EDT November 14, 2020

Please include the young readers’ information in the additional notes field at checkout. We will add them to the club roster after your order is processed.


Our online KidsReading Club offers middle-graders a literary social outlet with peers their age (9-12). We’re excited to hold our first discussion on The Witch Boy by Molly Knox Ostertag. In this graphic novel, thirteen-year-old Aster wants to learn witchcraft, even though his community of witches and shape-shifters forbids it for boys. Featuring a diverse cast of engaging characters, The Witch Boy will encourage conversations about friendship, self-discovery, and gender norms.

N.R. Lambert will lead the 90-minute, single-session meet on Saturday, November 14 at 11am.


This group will take place online via Zoom. Participants will receive instructions for access prior to the first session.
