Changing Hands Bookstore's Grandmas' Club

10:30AM-NOON MONDAY, JUNE 9
Changing Hands Bookstore's Grandmas' Club
The inaugural meeting of the new club discusses family-themed books and covers the special discounts and book lists the club makes available to members.

Two former educators, Kathy Halsey and Vicki Miles (who just happens to be Gayle Shanks' sister), have organized a Grandmas' Club to introduce adults to the best children's books available for kids of all ages. It's a free program and open to all grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles, moms and dads who like to read with children and celebrate special days with books and educational toys.

Meetings will include conversations about what constitutes good literature, which books are appropriate for which ages, and events such as crafts, puppet shows, book talks, and special guests.

This first meeting, a look at family-themed books, will also cover the special discounts and book lists the club will make available to members.

HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER
  • Fill out this form. We look forward to sharing many special books with you and your loved ones!

She currently serves as a charter board member of Page One Literary Center in Phoenix and volunteers as a reading tutor in a local elementary school.
