NEW Statewide book club pick, SLIDER — funny & kindhearted middle-grade novel

The Arrowhead Library System invites our seven county area to read together with Slider, the fourth title in the statewide book club, One Book | One Minnesota

Competitive eating vies with family expectations in this funny, heartfelt novel. National Book Award winner Pete Hautman has whipped up a rich narrative shot through with equal parts humor and tenderness.

A middle-grade novel that is laugh-out-loud funny and wonderfully kindhearted. It’s a story too delicious to put down which will be enjoyed by all ages.

Slider’s hero, David, may be scrawny but he thinks he can win the food eating contest and earn the $5,000 prize.  He needs to pay off the purchase he put on his mother’s charge card before she finds out.  His hands are full just as his stomach soon will be.

The Arrowhead Library System participates in One Book | One Minnesota, a statewide book club that invites Minnesotans of all ages to read a common title and come together virtually to enjoy, reflect, and discuss. Libraries are essential for connection, and through One Book | One Minnesota, libraries across the state are connecting their communities through stories.

In addition to reading the book, you can join the state-wide, virtual author discussion.
