HOUSTON, TX — Houston Public Library presents upcoming online and offline programs for kids and families to enjoy together. Following are the details of the events:

Jul 15, 2021 @ 03:00 PM to 04:00 PM

TAYSHAS Book Club is a lively and engaging book discussion with friends for students in grades 9-12 where the virtual youth book club meets each month to discuss a selected title from the TAYSHAS Reading List (past and present).

The TAYSHAS Reading List is developed by public and school librarians from around Texas to motivate young adults to become lifelong readers. This list takes its name from the Caddo Indian word meaning “friends" or "allies”.

Participants will receive a copy of the book that they can keep. This month’s selection is The Hive by Barry Lyga and Morgan Baden.

Matt Heaton's songs are a mix of rockabilly, surf, American roots, and Irish traditional music, delivered with a wry sense of humor and a sincere sense of fun.

Children and adults enjoy his musicianship and variety. The adults in the room particularly appreciate the Muppet-Esque touches of humor and observations of kid behavior. It's surely pleasing listeners of all ages.
