Program Description

Event Details

Do you like reading? Do you like talking about books? Join our book group for friendly, lively discussions.

This month we are reading the Graphic Novel: "When Stars Are Scattered" by Victoria Jamieson.

Omar and his younger brother, Hassan, have spent most of their lives in Dadaab, a refugee camp in Kenya. Life is hard there: never enough food, achingly dull, and without access to the medical care Omar knows his nonverbal brother needs. So when Omar has the opportunity to go to school, he knows it might be a chance to change their future . . . but it would also mean leaving his brother, the only family member he has left, every day.

Please register below. Those who register more than 10 days before the book discussion date will have a copy automatically sent to their chosen branch to be picked up. You will get a phone call when it is ready for you. The books are yours to keep and generously donated by Friends of the Library groups from throughout FVRLibraries.

To join this online program, you will need a computer, tablet or phone with a camera and microphone. The link to join the event will be emailed to registrants.  A phone number will be included to allow you to use a phone as speaker and microphone, if necessary.
