SYRACUSE — The Syracuse Public Library’s adult book club will read “The Higher Power of Lucky” by Susan Patron as its April pick.
Believing that her French guardian is about to abandon her to an orphanage in the city, 10-year-old Lucky runs away from her small town with her beloved dog by her side in order to trek across the Mojave Desert in this Newbery Medal-winning novel from Susan Patron.
Discussions will occur at 6 pm Tuesday, April 19, via Zoom and at 1 pm Thursday, April 21, in the downstairs meeting room.
Copies of “The Higher Power of Lucky” are available at the Syracuse Public Library. Patrons can also check out a digital audiobook on Libby/OverDrive.

Clay art classes return to Syracuse Public Library at 5 pm Tuesday, May 3. A master clay artist, Elizabeth Wamsley, is showing a transfer technique for sgraffito, a way of incising a design on a piece of pottery. Wamsley is bringing a premade dish that participants will decorate with sgraffito.
