Theatre of Youth, Talking Leaves launch kid-friendly book club

We normally think of book clubs as resolutely adult affairs, the sort of activity that seems to go hand-in-hand with wine, cheese, and sophisticated conversation. But a new collaboration (or, maybe more accurately, cross-promotion) between Theatre of Youth and Buffalo indy bookstore Talking Leaves shows that the concept can apply just as much to kids.

The book club will hold its first meeting in Talking Leaves (3158 Main St.) at 1 p.m. March 12, when young members will discuss "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing," Judy Blume's classic story about fourth-grader Peter Warren Hatcher and his pesky little brother, known to all as "Fudge." A Theatre of Youth production of a play adapted from Blume's book opens on March 25 in the Allendale Theatre.

Next up in the series is "How I Became a Pirate," slated for May. (TOY"s prodcution of "How I Became A Pirate" opens May 13.)
