ONE DAY'S TALE - Lois Barliant
Betsy Randall's journey from England to Colonial Virginia is a bone-rattling, eye opening voyage across the Atlantic to her brother's plantation-a place he described as 'paradise.' There, slavery forms a nightmarish counterpoint to the bonds of sisterhood that develop between Betsy and her brother's slave, Deborah.
programs for the family
Sometimes it's just nice to get out of the house and do something different, something fun, especially with the kids.
Why not bring them to the bookstore for an hour of stories, activities and more.
Stop in to Barbara's Bookstore in the Burr Ridge Village Center every Saturday at 1p for StoryTime with Holly. Each week Holly selects stories suitable for the age of her audience. Often Holly will allow the kids to make the story selection. What's more, Holly will occasionally have a theme for the afternoon with games and activities. We hope to see you there and don't forget to tell your friends!
