Calling all kids! Join a summertime book discussion at Stowe.
The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros is the remarkable story of Esperanza Cordero. Told in a series of vignettes – sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes deeply joyous – it tells the tale of a young Latina girl growing up in Chicago, inventing for herself who and what she will become.
The House on Mango Street is best for ages 12+, but all children are welcome to attend with a parent or guardian. Staff-led discussion;
the author will not appear at the event.
Join additional Kids Will Change the World Book Club discussions:
July 28 at 11 AM: The Lorax by Dr. Seuss (best for ages 4-10)
August 18 at 11 AM: Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry
by Mildred D. Taylor (best for ages 9-13)
Buy the books in the Stowe Museum Store. Hours
