Books and Bites: The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate

Wednesday, January 11, 2017 - 5:30 PM
| For members and their guests in grades 3-5 | Whitridge Room | $5 per child, payable at the door | advance registration required

Ivan is an artistic gorilla who has spent 27 years inside his glass enclosure in a shopping mall. When baby elephant Ruby arrives, everything changes, including the way that Ivan sees his very small world.

Read The One and Only Ivan on your own, then join a librarian for a discussion about the book, friendship, bravery, and animal rights. Light snacks will be served.

The One and Only Ivan was the 2013 Newbery Award winner and has touched the hearts of thousands of readers, young and old alike.
