Bookworms Middle Reader Book Club| Marissa Moss

Friday | June 16 | 7PM

Our Bookworms Middle Reader Book Club (and pizza party!) gathers on the third Friday of each month to build a community of young readers with their Noe Valley peers. Our special guest this month is the amazing Marissa Moss, who’ll be talking with us about several of her books: Kate Warne, Pinkerton Detective, Amelia’s Middle-School Graduation Yearbook, and Mira’s Diary: California Dreaming.

There’s a $5 deposit for the RSVP. If the child attends, the $5 will come back to them in the form of a store gift certificate. If they’re not able to attend or RSVP in advance, the money will be donated to The Children’s Book Project, a foundation that builds literacy by providing free books to children.
