Celebrated graphic novelist, Gen Lueng Yang, has taken the story of the Boxer Rebellion in China and created two wonderful and heartbreaking novels. Boxers tells the story of a little boy who is mistreated by Western ideology and revolts by later joining the Boxer Rebellion. Saints tells a different story about a little girl who is taken in by kind Christian missionaries and later, she and her faith become targets of the Boxer Rebellion.
Completely engrossing, these two novels are beautifully illustrated and keep you on the edge of your seat until the last page.
Come enjoy pizza and soda with us as we work on painting our rain barrel (which will be auctioned off during First Friday in June). No artist skills are required! Be sure to wear an old t-shirt, as we will be using paints.
The profits from the rain barrel will benefit our 2014 Teen Summer Reading Experience.
This program is open to teens in grades 6-12. Everyone is welcome. Come join us!
