Tweens Read: The Detective’s Assistant by Kate Hannigan
July 3 @ 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM
Tweens Read is an book discussion and activity group for tweens (ages 10-14.) Tweens are welcome to join in even if they have not read the book. Snack and activities included.
Nell Warne is 11 years old (or thereabouts) when she finds herself orphaned and on the doorstep of her long-lost relation. With no one else to claim her, Nell has few prospects and faces a grim future in the dreaded Home for the Friendless. When her aunt turns out to be working as a detective, Nell’s life gets a good bit more exciting.
Nell dons disguises and climbs aboard trains bound for adventure and even danger as she joins Kate Warne and the other Pinkerton detectives on their investigations. She even takes part in one of the most important cases of the detectives’ lives: protecting Lincoln as he makes the final leg of his journey into Washington, D.C.
This FREE program is intended for grades 5-12. Registration is not required.
