Students entering grades 6-8 are invited to a 4 week virtual intergenerational book group held in association with the JCA Heyman Interages Center. SSL hours will be earned if requirements are met.

Create connections with older adults from the Jewish Council for Aging's Heyman Interages Center through a multiweek discussion of The Insiders by Mark Oshiro. Participants can earn 8 SSL hours if they attend all 4 sessions, participate in the discussion, and present and submit a short Reflection piece. Participants will use the book to foster discussion, develop book evaluation skills, and comfort speaking with non-family member adults.

The Insiders by Mark Oshiro is the story of finding a place to belong, and making some friends along the way. Heartfelt, hilarious, and even sometimes sad, readers will cheer for the characters and wish for a magical closet for themselves.

Copies of the book can be obtained at any MCPL branch. E-book versions are available through both Libby and Hoopla. E-audiobook versions are also available through Libby and Hoopla.

Registration is required and is limited to 16 participants, who must meet age requirements.
