Keiki Book Club: See You in the Cosmos

Join us for our new year of Keiki Book Club! Completely kid-run, this book club is the perfect space for readers in grades 4 to 6.

We’re kicking off with Jack Cheng’s See You in the Cosmos. Check out the plot summary below!

“11-year-old Alex Petroski loves space and rockets, his mom, his brother, and his dog Carl Sagan–named for his hero, the real-life astronomer. All he wants is to launch his golden iPod into space the way Carl Sagan (the man, not the dog) launched his Golden Record on the Voyager spacecraft in 1977. From Colorado to New Mexico, Las Vegas to L.A., Alex records a journey on his iPod to show other lifeforms what life on earth, his earth, is like. But his destination keeps changing. And the funny, lost, remarkable people he meets along the way can only partially prepare him for the secrets he’ll uncover–from the truth about his long-dead dad to the fact that, for a kid with a troubled mom and a mostly not-around brother, he has way more family than he ever knew.”

Birds in the 'hood

You see lots of different kinds of birds on Kauaʻi.

Which ones are native, which ones are introduced? Which are helpful, and which are damaging? Which are doing just fine, and which need more protection? Should you put out a feeder for them? Why do they matter?

Join Hob Osterlund, Founder of the Kauaʻi Albatross Network, author of Holy Mōlī and producer of the short documentary “Kalama’s Journey”, for a lively conversation about our feathered friends.

BOOKLASTIC BOOK CLUB: WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING

Our adult book club finally has a name! We’re not fantastic…we’rebooklastic.

Booklastic meets on the last Wednesday of every month. Our January read is the runaway hit Where the Crawdads Sing, a work of fiction by Delia Owens. Check out the plot summary below!

“For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life—until the unthinkable happens.”

Join us for “Saving ʻŌhiʻa, Hawaiʻi’s Sacred Tree”, a documentary highlighting the significance of Hawaiʻi’s native tree, ʻōhiʻa, and the current threat of Rapid ʻŌhiʻa Death that is impacting thousands of acres of forest on Hawaiʻi Island.

“THE TURTLE SHIP” WITH HELENA KU RHEE

the_turtle_ship_book_cover_hspls_site.jpg

Author Helena Ku Rhee will share her new book, The Turtle Ship, in this special guest-star Storytime!

The Turtle Ship is a picture book about a young boy who dares to dream BIG, even though people laugh at him. Inspired by his pet turtle, he enters a national contest for the best battleship design. The story is loosely based on true facts about the Korean hero Admiral Yi Sun-sin and his incredible turtle ship. The Turtle Ship is the debut book of author Helena Ku Rhee, as well as the debut for artist Colleen Kong-Savage, who illustrated the book with exquisite paper collage.

About the Author:

Helena Ku Rhee grew up in Los Angeles, but has also lived in various parts of the U.S., Asia and Europe. She loves to travel far and wide across this beautiful planet, counting among her favorite journeys a camping trip in the Sahara Desert, a swim with elephants in Thailand and a horseback-riding tour of Easter Island. She currently lives in Los Angeles, and draws story ideas from her travels.

ADULT BOOK CLUB: MY LIFE ON THE ROAD
Nov

5:00 PM17:00

ADULT BOOK CLUB: MY LIFE ON THE ROAD

The Adult Book Club meets on the last Wednesday of every month. Our November read is My Life on the Road, a memoir by Gloria Steinem. Check out the plot summary below!

“Gloria Steinem had an itinerant childhood. When she was a young girl, her father would pack the family in the car every fall and drive across country searching for adventure and trying to make a living. The seeds were planted: Gloria realized that growing up didn’t have to mean settling down. And so began a lifetime of travel, of activism and leadership, of listening to people whose voices and ideas would inspire change and revolution.

My Life on the Road is the moving, funny, and profound story of Gloria’s growth and also the growth of a revolutionary movement for equality—and the story of how surprising encounters on the road shaped both. …In prose that is revealing and rich, Gloria reminds us that living in an open, observant, and “on the road” state of mind can make a difference in how we learn, what we do, and how we understand each other.”

VIRTUAL BOOK CLUB: FROM UNDER THE RUSSIAN SNOW

Fascinated by author Michelle A. Carter’s new memoir From Under the Russian Snow? Join us for our first virtual book club! We’ll be chatting with Ms. Carter about her memoir and the writing process. Come enjoy an evening of enlightening discussion.

From Under the Russian Snow is a searing personal memoir blended with gutsy reporting and canny observation of contemporary life in the emerging democracy of pre-Putin Russia. It would be just a coming-of-(middle) age story, sprawled across the eleven time zones of the planet’s largest country — if life hadn’t intervened.”

We have limited copies of the book available at the Circulation Desk, so please call or stop by to sign up.

Ms. Carter retired in 2012 after 15 years as an instructor of journalism and communications and advisor to the award-winning student newspaper, The Argonaut, at Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont. During 1995, she served as the United States Information Agency journalist-in-residence at the Russian-American Press and Information Center in Moscow, Russia.

The views expressed in this talk are those of the speaker and do not constitute an endorsement by the Hawai‘i State Public Library System. This free event is sponsored by the Friends of the North Shore Library at Princeville.
