Great Reads for Girls, our mother-daughter book group, will be discussing Bridge to Terabithia tomorrow evening, Wednesday, March 9th at 7 p.m.
We'd love to have you join us!
There will be an on-time drawing, an activity, and refreshments, along with the discussion of the book.
Bridge to Terabithia is a touching novel about a boy and a girl who create a magical kingdom in the forest.
It won the Newbery Award in 1978.
And it was made into a movie twice.
The PBS adaptation in 1985
The 2007 Disney movie
Katherine Paterson's first language was Chinese because her parents were missionaries in China and she spent the first years of her childhood there. After graduating with a Master's Degree in Christian Studies she became a missionary in Japan.
She has received many awards for her work and is now serving as the Library of Congress's National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, a two-year position created to raise national awareness of the importance of lifelong literacy and education.
