Gallery Opening: Summer Reading Exhibit
Tuesday, October 7, 6:30—8:00 PM, Sohier Room
This October, the Sohier Room will host an art display that brings the reading experience of Beverly teens to life. The students of Briscoe Middle School and Beverly High School read a wide range of books, from the classic Never Let Me Go to Rainbow Rowell’s loveable Eleanor and Park to the electrifying first book in the Michael Vey series. The students produced creative responses to the books they read, including drawings, posters, paintings, 3D models, songs, films, and more. Celebrate the opening of the art exhibit and enjoy some light refreshments! (This event is open to patrons of all ages. Hope to see you there!)
The following events are open only to young adults entering grades 6 through 12.
