Join us for the Community Read as we discuss the award winning book A Duet for Home by New York Bestselling Author Karina Yan Glaser (The VanderBeekers). A Duet for Home is a triumphant tale of friendship, healing, and the power of believing we're never truly alone in the world, told from the perspectives of two sixth graders living in a homeless shelter.
At first, June can’t believe it: their new home is a homeless shelter? When she’s told she can’t bring her cherished viola inside, she’s convinced the worst luck in the world landed her at Huey House.
But Tyrell has lived at Huey House for three years, and he knows all the good things about it: friendship, hot meals, and the music from next door drifting through the windows. With his help, June begins to see things differently. Just as she’s starting to understand how Huey House can be a home, a new government policy threatens all the residents. Can June and Tyrell work together to find a way to save Huey House as they know it?
This book club is in conjunction with the Homeless Alliance's Fresh Start Art Show in the Atrium of the Ronald J. Norick Downtown Library from October 2-24. The art show allows individuals experiencing homelessness a creative outlet and also assists them in becoming permanently housed through sales of their art.
Please register ONCE for your family, and then indicate how many will be attending the discussion. All ages welcome, solo or with family! Pick up your FREE family copy (while supplies last) at the Adult Reference Desk of Edmond Library beginning September 25.
