Live Zoom Event:
This Was Our Pact:
A Graphic Novel Book Discussion
 
For Children in Grades 4 - 6
who live in Litchfield, Bantam or Northfield
 
 
 
 
 
Sign up for this program and receive your very own physical copy of This Was Our Pact by Ryan Andrews--mailed directly to you.

In This Was Our Pact, Ben and his classmates are determined to find out where those lanterns really go that are released every year at the annual town festival, and to ensure success in their mission, they've made a pact with two simple rules: no one returns home. No one looks back.

Each week, we will have Zoom meetings to explore this compelling fantasy novel about friendship, wonder and determination. Like the characters in this book, we will also make our own paper lanterns, made at home with found materials, and imagine together where they might go upon release. We might be physically separate from each other but we can still gather virtually to talk about great books!
