Program Description

Event Details

A book club for rising 4th-6th graders.  Read the book, then join us for a casual book discussion and fun activities.

The book is Hello Universe by Erin Entrada Kelly. The lives of four tweens are intertwined when a bully's prank lands one of them at the bottom of a well and his friends band together in an epic quest to find and rescue him. Virgil, an immensely shy 11-year-old, lives in the shadow of his boisterous family, struggles in school, and wants little more than to hang out with his guinea pig and stay away from a bully. His friend Kaori Tanaka, is a self-proclaimed psychic. Virgil’s classmate Valencia, who is ostracized at school because of her near deafness, longs for a friend and hopes that Kaori’s psychic powers might help her vanquish her recurring nightmares. Instead, Kaori enlists Valencia’s help to rescue Virgil after he fails to show up for a scheduled meeting.  

After registering, come by Virginia Village to get a free copy of the book to keep!  Or you can check out a copy from the library.
