The Watsons go to Birmingham - 1963

by Christopher Paul Curtis

Book cover with old Plymouth and snapshots of the Watson family.

Enter the hilarious world of ten-year-old Kenny and his family, the Weird Watsons of Flint, Michigan. There’s Momma, Dad, little sister Joetta, and brother Byron, who’s thirteen and an “official juvenile delinquent.” When Momma and Dad decide it’s time for a visit to Grandma, Dad comes home with the amazing Ultra-Glide, and the Watsons set out on a trip like no other. They’re heading South to Birmingham, Alabama, toward one of the darkest moments in America’s history.

Sign up and get a copy of the book at the library service desk.

Join us for pizza and conversation about the book. We will watch the movie after discussing the book. Questions? Call Catherine at 798-3881
