All children invited to author’s “birthday party” at the library
Sunday, September 09, 2007
CANTON, MO- Local elementary and middle school students are invited by Dr. Terry Sherer’s teacher-education reading class at Culver-Stockton and the Canton Public Library to enjoy a week of reading Sept. 10-13 to celebrate Roald Dahl’s birthday.
“It is a great opportunity to bring a lot more kids to the library and introduce them to reading,” said Stephanie Stein, Canton Public Library.
To honor Roald Dahl, the library will show films based on his books. James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and Charlie & the Chocolate Factory will be featured. Each night a few chapters of the book will be discussed followed by the movie at 6:30 p.m.
“Roald Dahl is comparable to Dr. Seuss in his popularity with all young readers, and we want to celebrate his contribution to children’s literature,” said Sherer, chair of the Culver-Stockton Education Division.
The library will have a drawing to give away five books written by Roald Dahl to children attending the event, and a Roald Dahl birthday party will take place at the library on Thursday, Sept. 13 at 6:30 p.m. Cake and ice cream will be served.
If you have questions, contact Stephanie Stein at the Canton Public Library at 573-288-5279.
