Hello everyone,


Our first LATTICE Book Club for the 2019-2020 year is coming up in less than 3 weeks!  I hope you can come!


It will be on Thursday, September 19 from 4:30 - 6:00 at the East Lansing Public Library, 950 Abbott Rd. 


We will be discussing the book Sachiko: A Nagasaki Bomb Survivor's Story by Caren Stelson.   Our guest will be Dr. Susan Griffith.  Susan is on the Board of Directors of the Jane Addams Peace Association, and a Professor Emerita at Central Michigan University.  Susan has been a member of the Jane Addams Children's Book Award for many years.

LATTICE Book Club member Paul Bach shared this great resource for use with the book: a webinar with the author put on by the Five College Center.


I look forward to seeing you all again!  Please let me know if you can come.
