We visited the American South during the Civil War when we met Addy at our American Girl Book Club.
Our American Girl Book Club meets on the first Wednesday of each month to discuss a different American Girl book and make a new craft. This month, we made paper dolls.
After all, a doll is one of the few things that Addy took with her when she escaped to freedom.
If you have a child who likes the American Girl books or dolls, then he or she can join the fun. They can even bring their dolls with them, if they like. (Of course, the dolls aren’t required.)
Our next meeting is 4 p.m. on Aug. 2at our Main Branch. The girls will be meeting Samantha.
You can register your child for the book club on our web site or by calling (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.
