“I survived” at the Klamath County Library!
Downtown Klamath County Library
This month we’re celebrating Lauren Tarshis’ I Survived series! The I Survived chapter books fictionalize true tales of carnage and destruction from throughout history, from the sinking of the Titanic to the eruption of Mount Vesuvius to the Great Chicago Fire. Join us on Wednesdays at 3:30 pm for some death-defying adventure:
- April 4th: In I Survived The San Francisco Earthquake, newsboy Leo is stranded in the middle of San Francisco as the 1906 earthquake rattles the city to its core. We’ll attempt to construct our own earthquake-resistant structures on top of a Jello-filled pie pan.
- April 11th: It’s survival of the fittest! We’ll meet up at the library and head to Veterans Park for a battle of Squirrels vs. Foxes. Which side will emerge triumphant?
- April 18th: In I Survived the Joplin Tornado, eleven-year-old Dexter gets an opportunity to go storm chasing and gets more than he bargained for when he runs into the gigantic EF5 tornado that destroyed much of Joplin, Missouri in 2011. We’ll be making our own (much smaller) tornadoes in soda bottles!
- April 25th: Many of Tarshis’ books star kids who survive notable natural disasters throughout history. You’ll need all your survival skills to make it to the end of our natural-disaster-themed obstacle course!
