Virtual Brown Bag Book Club (RSVP Required)
May 6 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Virtual Brown Bag Book Club will meet twice during the month of May. We will review the first half of the book on the 6th and the second half of the book on the 20th. Participants can pick up their book to check out on the 2nd floor of the library or by utilizing the library’s curbside pick-up service, along with a “brown bag” with a dessert, drink, and an interactive activity! This month, we will be reading The Egypt Game by Zilpha Keatley Snyder. RSVP for this event above to receive the Zoom link via email!
Make sure you RSVP separately for the second session on May 20th.
Quick book description: The first time Melanie Ross meets April Hall, she’s not sure they’ll have anything in common. But she soon discovers that they both love anything to do with ancient Egypt. When they stumble upon a deserted storage yard behind the A-Z Antiques and Curio Shop, Melanie and April decide it’s the perfect spot for the Egypt game. Before long there are six Egyptians instead of two. After school and on weekends they all meet to wear costumes, hold ceremonies, and work on their secret code. Everyone thinks it’s just a game until strange things begin happening to the players. Has the Egypt game gone too far?
