READING INTO HISTORY

Monthly Book Club: Sunday, September 30, 3:30 pm

Reading Into History Our monthly book club will now be held on Sunday! We Rode the Orphan Trains by Andrea Warren has won many awards and is a “Recommended Book” by the PBS Teacher Source and Parent's Choice Foundation. As the School Library Journal writes, “These remarkable stories have enormous human-interest appeal and will provoke serious discussion about just how much life has really changed for children from the last century until today.”
The book tells the true stories of eight men and women of the 200,000 homeless, abandoned, or orphaned city kids who, between 1854 and 1929, were put on trains by the Children's Aid Society and sent to new homes in the rural Midwest. Be prepared for some happy real-life tales as well as some sad ones. Ages 9 and up.
