The summer edition of Girlfriends Read Book Club at the Neenah Public Library will meet on Thursday, August 18, at 2:00 p.m., to discuss the book Star in the Forest, by Laura Resau.  Girlfriends Read features books with strong girl characters, written for ages nine and up but with broad appeal. Meetings include lively discussion, book-related activities and snacks. Participants are welcome to attend solo or with a friend or family member. 

Star in the Forest  features eleven-year-old Zitlally, whose  beloved father is deported to Mexico.  She takes refuge in her trailer park’s forest of rusted car parts, where she befriends a spunky neighbor and finds a stray dog that she nurses back to health and believes she must keep safe so that her father will return.

To register and get a copy of the book, stop at the Neenah Library youth desk, call for more information at 920-886-6335, or email us at [email protected].  Register early – space is limited, as are the number of books available for loan.

Girlfriends Read is made possible by the Friends of the Neenah Public Library and by the Neenah Public Library Trust Fund.
