What the heck does "KTB" stand for???

KTB = Kids Talk Books. It's a book discussion and activity group that started over 20 years ago. Its first incarnation, led by former head of the department, Maureen Lok, was a summer program where she and the kids met weekly to, well, talk about books! It grew in popularity and about a dozen or so years ago I extended it into the school year, meeting one Friday evening per month after the library closes for the day.

KTB is a little different from traditional book groups in that no specific titles need to be read for the meetings (but some knowledge of or interest in the monthly topic always makes things more fun). In October, it's "Kids On Strike!" Kids, if you think you have it hard because you have to make your bed every day*, wait till you discover the true history of children at work, real-life stories of kid inventors and entrepreneurs, and novels about get-rich schemes gone wrong....

All of the info is below. I hope that you (and a friend) will join us!
