QW Libraries is delighted to participate again in this statewide reading program to encourage multi-generation discussion of a special book and issues..  This year’s title Bread and Roses, Too by Katherine Paterson is a short novel  about a Massachusetts mill strike in 1912 and two young children sent to Barre, Vermont for their safety during the violent times.

*Multi-generational book discussion with artist Charlet Davenport.    There will be a wide ranging discussion of  art, both the millworkers’ portraits and the protest art made by students in open studio with Zoe Potter.  We’ll discuss Paterson’s research as well as her writing,  and hear from an 11 year old imagining this past and a grandmother recalling her childhood in Lawrence.  Friday, April 13, 3 p.m. at the Quechee Library.  Refreshments too.
