Family Book Discussion
Join a family book discussion and craft event featuring The Watsons Go to Birmingham – 1963, by Christopher Paul Curtis. Set in 1963, this is a fictional account of an African-American family’s drive from Flint, Michigan to Birmingham, Alabama, and the tragic historical events that take place during their visit. This will be a family friendly discussion and it is not necessary to have read the book to attend. Families will also enjoy working together to complete a make and take craft. In the spirit of giving and peace, please bring canned goods or supplies to this event to benefit Bags of Hope, Morningstar Mission of Joliet and St. John Food Pantry.
