A New Children’s Book Club for Early Readers debuts at Main Street Children’s Museum in Rock Hill


Sunday, September 15, 2013 at 3 p.m.
Join author Tameka Fryer Brown for an afternoon of literature and learning! 


Rock Hill, SC - Follow the reader to Main Street Children’s Museum!  One Sunday each month at 3 p.m. to celebrate the wonder of words and the power of pictures!  The new OWL (“Our Wee Literature”) Book Club is for families with children of beginning and early readers interested in sharing stories at home and learning about the author or illustrator herself.


The Main Street Children’s Museum will suggest a book to read before their scheduled program.  During the OWL Book Club, participants will talk about the “read ahead book,” listen to a featured story read by the author or illustrator, and do special activities pertaining to the book’s theme.  Don’t have the “read ahead book” at home?  The books can be found at your local library.


Featured books will be available for sale and signing in the Museum gift shop following the program in the Museum gift shop at 3:30 p.m.  This is a great way to build a very special library for a child!  Book sales are provided by Park Road Books.


Sunday, September 15th will feature author Tameka Fryer Brown and her book, My Cold Plum Lemon Pie Bluesy Mood.  As a student, Tameka Fryer Brown had different career aspirations from being a children’s author.  Her love of reading picture books with her children inspired her to study and practice to become a published author.  She travels to offer author visits for students and writing workshops for adults.  In My Cold Plum Lemon Pie Bluesy Mood, Jamie’s character shows the reader how colors can express changing moods and our relationships with others.  The “read ahead book” will be My Many Colored Days by Dr. Seuss and can be found at the local library.  Other activities will include moving to some blues music and making a moody colored craft!


Free with general admission.  Free for museum members.  To Register, call 803-327-6400.
