 Adventures You Won't Want to Miss!

Tune in to discover stories of characters following their dreams and finding where they belong in this adventurous middle grade virtual event!

Join us virtually for:

  • Across So Many Seas by RUTH BEHAR. Spanning over 500 years, this epic novel tells the stories of four girls from different generations of a Jewish family, many of them forced to leave their country and start a new life. Though many years and many seas separate these girls, they are united by a love of music and poetry, a desire to belong and to matter, a passion for learning, and their longing for a home where all are welcome. And each is lucky to stand on the shoulders of their courageous ancestors.

  • Shira and Esther's Double Dream Debut by ANNA E. JORDAN. What would happen if two girls that look just alike (but could not be more different!) traded lives for a little bit? Then just maybe starlet Shira could live her dreams of singing and dancing onstage, and shy Esther could follow her dreams of quietly studying Torah. If only the two could actually switch places...

  • Honey and Me by MEIRA DRAZINMilla and Honey have been best friends since forever. Milla envies Honey’s confidence, her charisma, and her big, chaotic family. The two girls do everything together, so when Honey joins Milla’s school for sixth grade, why is it not as great as Milla expected? Will Milla ever find the courage to step out of Honey’s shadow and into her own spotlight?

  • Nightmares in Paradise by ADEN POLYDOROS. Zach Darlington saved the world from total apocalypse and all he got was grounded. But when his sister falls into a mysterious coma, it's up to him and his friends to retrieve fruit from the Tree of Life (from the Garden of Eden!) in order to revive her. Now if only he can do that before his parents send him off to boarding school...
