Fort Greene Young Readers Book Group discusses The Girl Who Married A Skull: And Other African Stories
Led by Greenlight bookseller Sarah, our young readers book group in Fort Greene is geared toward kids ages 9 to 12, and reads great contemporary and classic chapter books. Parents are welcome (but not required) to attend, and pizza is served. For February, the group discusses The Girl Who Married a Skull and Other African Stories edited by Kel McDonald. In this vibrant comics treasury, some of storytelling’s finest talents reimagine classic African folktales with a modern twist. Funny, warm, and wildly inventive, these timeless tales are brand new all over again. The anthology features stories by Jose Pimienta, Sloane Leong, Carla Speed McNeil, Jarrett Williams, and many more. Dynamic and thought-provoking, this foray into the world of African fables and fairy tales is sure to entertain young readers who welcome both strong messages and open-ended myths.
Current book group picks are always 15% off at Greenlight, in the store or online.
