Read Across America

Read Across America (Week 3)
by Stacy

Read Across America is a year-long celebration of all things reading! Starting in August and ending in July, Read Across America is about making time to read with kids and showing how reading is important and fun!

If we are going to create more readers, more writers, people who feel included and recognized, and people who understand that the world is far richer than just their experiences alone, kids need books that are as diverse and complex as the society we live in.

Join us each week as we share more Books Across America! Enjoy the comforts of reading in your own state, or travel the map to explore something new! 

Check out this week's book recommendations, featuring stories set in Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska & Nevada!

Readers' Realm

Reader's Realm: Sports
with Lisa


OK, this is it; we’re finishing up SPORTS.  Keep commenting or join in now. 

Readers’ Realm will be taking a break for a while.  Keep watch as it might return in the fall. 



As you finish your book, did it come down to one big game or one big play?  Tell about it.  If not, how did the sport figure into how the book ended?  Please include the title and author of the book you’re reading in your post. 

In my book, "Gabby Garcia’s Ultimate Playbook" by Iva-Marie Palmer, Gabby ends up with TWO games/competitions at the same time, baseball and talent show.  She manages to do her best at both.  In the baseball game, it doesn't come down to her having the best, win-all play.  I like that.  She is part of it, but only a part.  Baseball is her thing, and she finds a way to bring baseball into the talent show as well.  Plus, she learns a hard lesson; she is not always the Golden Child, and that’s OK.  

Remember, look for Readers’ Realm to return in the fall.  In the meantime, keep reading!

On Monday, March 22nd, 2021, at approximately 05:15 a.m., District 2 Patrol Officers responded to a shooting at the Hometowne Suites located at 3705 North Chambers Road.

Officers located an adult male in a hotel room who had been shot. This male suffered fatal injuries and was declared deceased on scene. A juvenile male was detained after being located by officers nearby. His involvement is under investigation and his name will not be released at this time. No one has been arrested or charged in this incident and we are not looking for any outstanding suspects. This case is currently being investigated as a homicide by our Major Crimes Homicide Unit.

The identity of the deceased will be released by the Adams County Coroner's Office after a positive identification has been made, and his next-of-kin has been notified.

Anyone that has information about this case is asked to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.7867. By using Crime Stoppers, tipsters can remain anonymous and be eligible for a REWARD of up to $2,000.

On Sunday, March 21st, 2021, at approximately 10:00 a.m., District 1 Patrol Officers responded to a welfare check at Front Range Tire located at 3005 South Peoria Street.

Once on scene, officers located an adult male on the ground, next to the building. This male had obvious trauma injuries and was declared deceased on scene. The male was taken to the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office and an autopsy was completed. It has been determined that the male was shot multiple times which led to his death. This case is now classified as a homicide and will be investigated by our Major Crimes Homicide Unit. Because this is an active investigation, there is no additional information to share.

The name of the victim was released by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office after he was positively identified as Vincent Brown (09/16/1998).

We now need the public's assistance. Anyone who may have observed anything suspicious, or has information about this case, is asked to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.7867. By using Crime Stoppers, tipsters can remain anonymous and be eligible for a REWARD of up to $2,000.

Meet Eric Berlin

Welcome to Family Book Club! This is an exciting club for families who love to read and is appropriate for ages 8-15. The books chosen are always within the third to sixth grade level but both younger and older kids have enjoyed them! If your child is younger, I encourage the family to read the book aloud together or listen to the audiobook (if available)!

This month we are reading "The Puzzling World of Winston Breen" by Eric Berlin. This is a fun mystery, full of puzzles that you can solve along with Winston, and the prize is treasure! Below is a suggested reading schedule. Every Monday, visit this blog to help guide your reading!

Chapters 6-10 
- Do you think North and Glowacka will stick with the hunt? They both seemed ready to quit for different reasons when they first met up with Winston and the ex-cop, Marietta. 
- Make a guess: how do you think the treasure hunt is going to go? 
- Do you think everyone will work together or will they end up separating? If they do, who do you think will find it first? 
- When you saw the new puzzle pieces, did they give you any ideas? 
- By deduction, Marietta thinks Winston broke into Mrs. Lewis’s house. Do you agree with him or not? 

Next week read chapters 11-15! 

We will be having a special virtual event on March 29 at 5 p.m. to meet the author! Register here to receive the WebEx link.

This event is in collaboration with Jefferson County Public Library and their Young Reader's Book Club. Copies of the book are available for checkout at the Tallyn's Reach Library. Please call 303.627.3050 if you'd like to put one on hold to be picked up at a different branch. Copies are also available through JCPL and Prospector.
