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

Let's embark on a literary adventure together this summer and celebrate Blind Willie Johnson's profound impact on American culture with the book A Song for the Cosmos: Blind Willie Johnson and Voyager's Golden Record. Blues guitarist Blind Willie Johnson led a hardscrabble life, but in 1977, NASA's Voyager spacecrafts were launched, each carrying a golden record to introduce planet Earth to the cosmos, and his song "Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground" became the defining anthem. Weaving together elements of Johnson's biography with an account of how a team of astrophysicists, writers, and artists created the golden record for the Voyager mission, Jan Lower and Gary Kelley craft a tale that is itself A Song for the Cosmos.

Books for this program will be available at the Severance Library beginning Monday, June 24. Thank you to Words of Windsor for partnering with us to provide books!

Please note that this program is registration-based only; please register as one total registration, rather than registering each individual in your family. If you have more than one child that will be participating in the book club, please indicate the number so that we can prepare enough activity supplies for everyone, but each family will receive one book.

Photographs taken during library events may be used for Clearview Library District publicity. If you would like to opt out, please let the photographer know at the time the picture is being taken.

For questions, please contact Trisha at trisha@clearviewlibrary.org
