STEAM Rollers to Read Maniac Magee

This month, STEAM Rollers book club for grades 3 - 6 will read Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli.

This Newbery Medal book tells the mythical tale of a legendary hero: 12-year-old Jeffrey Magee a.k.a. Maniac Magee. An orphan with no place to call home, Maniac Magee enters Two Mills, a town sharply divided by race. Magee's athletic skills, combined with his nonjudgmental way, lead the people of Two Mills to overcome segregation, racial profiling, and ignorance.

Learn the secrets and skills behind tying useful knots from our special Boy Scout guests and test your knot-untying skills as well!

The STEAM Rollers book club for children in grades 3-6 will meet at the Cumming Library on Thursday, October 27 at 4:00 p.m.
