November Teen Programs
Published on Friday, November 9, 2012 - 4:29pm
The Francis Gregory Teen Space has a new librarian! Come say hello to Ms. Bobbie and learn about the programs and activities she has planned for this month.
Celebrate National American Indian Heritage Month this November and make your own Chippewa Dream Catcher in the Teen Space on Nov. 19th at 5 p.m. Discover what your dreams mean and craft your own dream catcher to ward off nightmares. Learn more about American Indian Heritage Month online at nativeamericanheritagemonth.gov.
Head to the National Museum of the American Indian on the Mall for lots of free programs and performances all month.
Want to join the Teen Book Club? Pick up a copy of Sherman Alexie’s The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian and join Ms. Bobbie for a discussion:
Meet Junior, an expert doodler growing up on the Spokane Indian Reservation (the Rez) in Washington state. Junior is fed up with the less than stellar education he is receiving on the Rez. Determined to take his future into his own hands, he leaves home to attend an all-white high school. Sounds perfect right? Maybe not, when the only other Indian at his high school is the mascot.
The Francis Gregory Library Teen Book Club will meet Wednesday, Nov. 28 at 6:30 p.m.
See the attached November Teen Space Newsletter for more programs and events. All programs in the Teen Space are for youth ages 12 to 19.
