We’ve partnered with The Long Island Museum in Stony Brook for a unique program (grades 4 – 6 and their families) which includes a book discussion and an opportunity to tour parts of the museum.  This collaborative book club uses the museum to enhance book discussions – it’s a chance to share a one-of-a-kind reading experience, and we’re thrilled to offer it to Three Village.

Sunday, May 21, 3:00 – 4:30 p.m.

Black Duck by Janet Taylor Lisle in conjunction with the exhibit Midnight Rum: Long Island and Prohibition (an opportunity to look at an important national story as experiences through the lives of New Yorkers, both rural and urban).

When Ruben and Jed find the dead body on the Rhode Island shore, they are certain it has something to do with smuggling liquor.  It is the 1920’s, Prohibition is in full swing, and almost everyone in the shore community is involved. Suddenly, the boys find themselves involved as well.  Didn’t the dead man have something on him, and didn’t they take it?  It isn’t long before Ruben is actually on the legendary Black Duck itself, caught in a war between two of the most ferocious prohibition gangs.  In-person registration begins at the library on April 22.  Books will be supplied at the time of registration at Emma Clark.


For more information regarding this book discussion, please email the Children’s Department at kids@emmaclark.org or call 631.941.4080 ext. 123.
