Tween Book Club: The Underground Abductor

Tween Book Club: The Underground Abductor

Are you a 4th-6th grader who loves to read? Join us for a book club with like-minded readers, where we'll discuss books and do cool activities. This month, we're discussing The Underground Abductor, a graphic novel about Harriet Tubman from the Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales series.

Araminta Ross was born a slave in Delaware in the early 19th century. Slavery meant that her family could be ripped apart at any time, and that she could be put to work in dangerous places and for abusive people. But north of the Mason-Dixon line, slavery was illegal. If she could run away and make it north without being caught or killed, she’d be free. Facing enormous danger, Araminta made it, and once free, she changed her name to Harriet Tubman.

Register online to attend. Registration opens after January's book club meeting. First priority will be given to kids from the waitlist for January's meeting if spaces open. Speak with a librarian to pick up a free copy of The Underground Abductor to keep (supplies are limited).
