This summer, adults and children have the opportunity to experience one story in three different ways.
For children ages seven and older, the story is James and the Giant Peach. At sign-up, you will receive a copy of the book by Roald Dahl. We will meet to watch the film version and talk about similarities and differences. Then we will head to Timberlake to see the play.* We will meet once more to discuss all three versions.
July 13th-July 24th – Register and receive your free book.
July 28th 2:00 - Watch the movie and paint a T-shirt to wear to the theater.
Aug. 4th 12:30– Attend a pre-party at the library and go to Timberlake for the 2:00 performance.
Aug. 6 2:00 – Come to the wrap-up party at the library, which will include a snack and a craft.
