Let's Talk About It! French Revolution

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Middlebury Community Public Library
Room 1 & 2
Explore the French Revolution with us! This evening discuss A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens with Guest lecturer Kyle Schlabach, Adjunct Professor of English, Goshen College. Kyle will give a 45 minute presentation; then, after a short break, there is a small group discussion facilitated by leaders, questions provided. The entire group reassembles briefly for final questions and comments. Register and pick up the book at the library's front desk.

A Tale of Two Cities (1859) is set in London and Paris before and during the French Revolution. With well over 200 million copies sold, it ranks amongst the most famous works in the history of literary fiction. The novel depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralized by the French aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution, the corresponding brutality demonstrated by the revolutionaries toward the former aristocrats in the early years of the revolution, and many unflattering social parallels with life in London during the same time period.

Video Game Design Club will be using the Bloxel format.  Each child will need to bring their own tablet or smart phone to load their designs into our online community. Once a design is complete, other students in our club can play the levels have built.  

Once students have attended 3 meetings, they may borrow the Bloxel kit WHILE IN THE LIBRARY to continue building their game. Ms. Beth's goal is that by the end of April, each child will have a complete level designed for their game. We will cover planning, story writing, and design elements for games.
