Young Readers Book Group discusses Little White Duck by Na Liu and Andres Vera Martinez

Led by former Greenlight bookseller Brette, this book group is geared toward kids ages 8 to 14, and reads great contemporary and classic chapter books. Parents are welcome (but not required) to attend; pizza is served. For April, the group discusses the graphic novel Little White Duck: A Childhood in China by author Liu Na and artist Andres Vera Martinez. Da Qin Big Piano and her younger sister, Xiao Qin Little Piano live in the city of Wuhan, China with their parents in the 1970s. For decades, China's government has kept the country separated from the rest of the world. When their country's leader, Chairman Mao, dies, new opportunities begin to emerge. Da Qin and Xiao Qin soon learn that their childhood will be much different than the upbringing their parents experienced. Eight short stories based on the author's own life give readers a unique look at what it was like to grow up in China during this important time in history.

Marcelle Sauvageot is the missing link in a chain of badass literary French feminists, one that includes Colette, Simone De Beauvoir, and Marguerite Duras. Completed shortly before her death in 1934, Commentary was Sauvageot's only book--but what a book! At just under 100 pages, this book encompasses memoir, theory, fiction, epistle, love, rage, confession, confusion, despair.... Above all, Sauvageot is honest; sometimes brutal, but always honest.
