Children ages 8-12 are invited to explore science, technology, engineering, art and math through lively book discussions and hands-on activities during Tompkins County Public Library’s monthly STEAM Book Club.
Continuing Wednesday, April 26 with a discussion of “Shakespeare Stealer” by Gary Blackwood, the STEAM Book Club is designed to encourage area students to improve their understanding of current core competencies through critical thinking and book-related activities.
“Shakespeare Stealer” follows the journey of a young orphan ordered to infiltrate Shakespeare’s acting troupe and steal a copy of “Hamlet.” Instead, he steals the hearts of the actors and finds the loyalty and belonging he’d been missing.
The club will meet in the Library’s Thaler/Howell Programming Room at 3:45 p.m. for discussion and refreshments. This month we will be joined by The Ithaca Shakespeare Company.
Free copies of “The Shakespeare Stealer” can be picked up at the Youth Services Reference Desk.
For more information, contact Kate DeVoe at (607) 272-4557 extension 277 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 'STEAM Book Club' has been made possible by the Tompkins County Public Library Foundation with support from the Michael Kammen Children's Fund and the Bradford Endowment for Youth Services Programming.
