On Tuesday, September 11 at 1:00 PM, Chris Jackson, New Horizons’ Book Club facilitator, leads a discussion of the book "From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler" by E.L. Konisburg. Open to all adults 55 and over.
12 year old Claudia feels like she is under-appreciated by her parents and decides to run away. Her younger brother, Jamie, comes with her mostly for the adventure. They take the train from the suburbs of Connecticut to Manhattan and move into the Metropolitan Museum of Art. While staying there, they help solve a mystery about a small statue that may be a lost work of Michelangelo. This gives a purpose not only to the story, but especially to Claudia, who ran away in part to find purpose and meaning.
Children’s books are great for adults to read occasionally - they can tell simple stories that often do a great job of getting to root meanings of life.
