Katherine Applegate - Wishtree — at Takoma Park Library (MD)

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, September 26, 2017 - 7:30pm to 8:30pm

Trees tell stories, in the rings on their trunks and in the spirits whispering in their leaves. This story chronicles a community through the perspective of the neighborhood “wishtree”, where individuals pin their hopes and dreams. When a new family moves into the neighborhood, the tree understands the importance of battling prejudice with acceptance and unity. But can the community learn these powerful lessons too? Applegate ties her love for environmental awareness with topical themes of immigration, community, and overcoming the fear of the “other” through love in this much-needed story in today’s complicated world. Ages 9-12
