...to the Cape Girardeau Public Library’s High Tea Party! This event marks our summer reading kick-off and is just the first of many exciting programs happening here at the library this summer! Be sure to register (space is limited!), then join us Saturday, June 3rd from 1-3 pm for an afternoon of games, crafts, and--of course--TEA! We strongly encourage you to don your fanciest costume (or blue jeans) because there will be a prize for the best dressed table.
Come prepared to try some exciting teas, enjoy a light snack, and make a fancy fascinator!
You can also find lots of tea-themed or tea party-themed entertainment throughout the collection here, including:
Alice is a bored schoolgirl who yearns for a more exciting life. Things get "curiouser and curiouser" after she follows the frantic White Rabbit down the rabbit hole and has a series of surreal misadventures in the madcap world of Wonderland, where "nothing's impossible." In Wonderland, Alice meets extraordinary characters such as Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Queen of Hearts and the Cheshire Cat.
For Ning, the only thing worse than losing her mother is knowing that it is her own fault. She was the one who unknowingly brewed the poison tea that killed her-- the poison tea that now threatens to also take her sister, Shu. She hears of a competition to find the kingdom's greatest shénnóng-shi-- masters of the ancient and magical art of tea-making-- where the winner will receive a favor from the princess. It may be Ning's only chance to save Shu's life. That is, if Ning can survive the backstabbing competitors and bloody court politics.
