No reservations necessary. Parents are welcome, but not required to attend! Just show up ready to chat about the book we're reading that month! We'll provide thematic snacks and some fun activities!


What We're Reading: This month, we're getting spooky with The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin


*If you're concerned about the reading level of the books we're choosing, please see Kelsey or Erika at the store. We can help give you some insight about whether your reader will need a little parent-aided help or if it's something they can tackle on their own.

For any questions, please email us at roscoebooks@gmail.com.
