Lit Talks: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
Every Sunday and Wednesday at Bank Street Bookstore, staff member Regina Teltser facilitates read-alouds and dramatized readings of middle-grade books and short stories. On Sunday, April 27 at 4:00 p.m., the group discusses A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith.
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is a profound coming-of-age story introducing Francie Nolan, who learns the hardships of the city's poor as she grows up with her family in the slums of Williamsburg at the turn of the century. The Nolans struggle, but Francie experiences enough of life as a young girl to develop wisdom, identity, and purpose.
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn contains adult themes and is not recommended for children under 13.
Come join Regina and her group of readers as they analyze different passages from great books and stories together. Sunday's group meets at 4:00 p.m. on the second floor of the bookstore.
