History Makers Book Club is for homeschoolers who are curious about interesting and significant people from history.

In honor of National Poetry Month, we will read about Emily Dickinson in the book On Wings of Words: The Extraordinary Life of Emily Dickinson.

On Wings of Words is an inspiring and kid-accessible biography of one of the world's most famous poets.

Emily Dickinson, who famously wrote "Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul," is brought to life in this moving story. In a small New England town lives Emily Dickinson, a girl in love with small things--a flower petal, a bird, a ray of light, a word. In those small things, her brilliant imagination can see the wide world--and in her words, she takes wing. From celebrated children's author Jennifer Berne comes a lyrical and lovely account of the life of Emily Dickinson: her courage, her faith, and her gift to the world. With Dickinson's own inimitable poetry woven throughout, this lyrical biography is not just a tale of prodigious talent, but also of the power we have to transform ourselves and to reach one another when we speak from the soul.

Books for this program will be available at the Severance Library beginning Monday, April 8. Thank you to Words of Windsor for partnering with us to provide book club books!

For ages 6-12. Please note that this program is registration-based only; please register separately for each participant.
