The selection for our December Arrow Book Club (ages 9-12): The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street by Karina Yan Glaser!
This timeless, heartwarming story reads like a classic in a contemporary setting. Set in Harlem, the endearing cast of characters brings this New York neighborhood to life on the page. The five Vanderbeeker kids live in the same neighborhood where their dad grew up. To stay in their beloved brownstone home, they’ve got to convince a landlord they never see to renew their lease. Their hijinks will make you laugh. Their tenderness will make you sigh. Their determination will make you root for them! If you liked the Penderwicks or the Melendys, you’ll adore the Vanderbeekers!
Brave Writer book clubs are a wonderful sneaky way to draw out the writer. They think they’re chatting with new friends online. You know they’re naturally growing writing skills!
