The Warren Public Library is pleased to offer Prime Time Family Reading Time, a free six-week program of reading, group discussion, and storytelling for families with children ages 6-10.  At each session families will enjoy a dinner together, followed by a reading of children’s stories.  A group discussion will take place about topics from the stories to promote critical thinking skills.  Younger children will be supervised at no charge during the program and take part in their own activities. At the end of each session each family will receive a copy of one of the books read, as well as a chance to win door prizes. Every family that attends all six sessions in their entirety will receive a $100 gift card. Weekly prizes will include $50 gift cards.

To register for the six-week series call 586-353-0580. This program is for children ages 6 to 10 accompanied by their families and will be held at Wiegand Park at 8700 Toepfer Road (between 8 and 9 Mile Roads and between Van Dyke and Hoover). Transportation can be provided if needed. Due to limited resources, we will accept newcomers first, and those who have participated in the past will be added to the waitlist.

Prime Time Family Reading Time in Warren is offered by the Michigan Humanities in cooperation with the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities, and with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the American Library Association, and additional corporate and private sponsors.

Michigan Notable Book award recipient Sarah Zachrich Jeng will be visiting the Civic Center Library to discuss her award-winning novel The Other Me

This unpredictable sci-fi thriller begins when a failed artist accidentally opens a door to an alternate reality where she never pursued her dreams and must uncover the forces behind the switch before time runs out. Library Journal calls The Other Me a “page-turner”. CrimeReads says The Other Me is “both a suspenseful psychological thriller and an astute reinvention of the time travel narrative.”

Don’t miss your chance to meet Sarah Zachrich Jeng, who Booklist says is “a writer to watch very closely”! A question-and-answer session will follow a selected reading by the author.  Refreshments will be served and copies of the book will be available for purchase. 

Registration is required. You can register online or by calling 586.751.0770. You can read a sample of The Other Me here.
