PLG Young Readers Book Group discusses The Secret Garden
Led for this month (virtually!) by Greenlight co-owner Jessica, our young readers book group in Prospect Lefferts Garden is geared toward kids ages 9 to 12, and reads great contemporary and classic chapter books. Parents are welcome (but not required) to attend. For March, the group discusses Frances Hodgson Burnett’s unforgettable classic, The Secret Garden. When orphaned Mary Lennox comes to live at her uncle's great house on the Yorkshire Moors, she finds it full of secrets. The mansion has nearly one hundred rooms, and her uncle keeps himself locked up. And at night, she hears the sound of crying down one of the long corridors. The gardens surrounding the large property are Mary's only escape. Then, Mary discovers a secret garden, surrounded by walls and locked with a missing key. With the help of two unexpected companions, Mary discovers a way in—and becomes determined to bring the garden back to life.
