The First Lady selected Frindle by Andrew Clements as Junes featured Book of the Month. Frindle is a story about a boy named Nicholas who encounters all kinds of adventures after creating a new name for the pen: frindle.
She said she thinks children and families will enjoy the imagination and creativity of the main character in Frindle. Its an exciting narrative that I hope will create a great opportunity for families to spend quality time with books this summer.
Haslam will travel the state during the summer to promote this program, including visits to hometown baseball games in June. She also plans to partner with non-profit and business groups to provide access to new books for children in need and help deliver Read20 Book Club books to families across Tennessee.
She is scheduled to be at the Watertown Library at 10:45 a.m., Thursday, June 21, to promote Read20.
