Thanks to our Friends of the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library for providing the Legos for this very special program just for Tweens, including our pink Legos. Tween girl Lego lovers, we want you to join our club, too. We love our tweens and that they use our library - happy National Library Week.

12 Years a Slave by Solomon Northrup. Read and discuss the book that inspired the movie! First published in 1853, the memoir was reprinted several times in the 19th century. An annotated 1968 version quietly drew attention and since 1999, Saratoga Springs, NY has celebrated an annual Solomon Northrup Day. Adapted and produced by Steve McQueen in 2013, the film won both the Golden Globe and Oscar for Best Picture of the Year, as well as countless other awards for acting, writing and directing.
