He, guys! Our February book is another historical fiction, though it’s set about 200 years after Sign of the Beaver. It’s called The Watsons Go to Birmingham – 1963, and is the first book by Christopher Paul Curtis. Mr. Curtis is one of my favorite authors. He won the Newbery Medal for his second book, Bud, not Buddy, a Newbery Honor for Watsons, and just received another Newbery Honor for his latest novel, Elijah of Buxton. Wow!
And here’s some exciting news! Mr. Curtis will be in Bellingham just two days after our meeting! I’m planning to go to see him, and I hope to bring your questions! So be thinking about what you might want to ask!
See you soon!
