Get to know other tweens through crafts and activities at this book club! Join us to chat about "Tidesong" by Wendy Xu, a magically heartwarming graphic novel about self-acceptance and friendship. Sophie, a water witch, is sent to train with her magical relatives so she can be admitted to the Royal Magic Academy. But navigating her family's dynamics as well as her own self-doubt and anxiety proves to be an even bigger challenge. Ages 7–12. Please register. Pick up your book club copy (yours to keep!) at the Downtown Library children's information desk after registering (starting in late May). Visit mcpl.info/bookclub for additional book clubs for all ages.
