Mapleton Reads

Mapleton’s Board of Education is excited to announce two new titles for the sixth annual community-wide reading program, Mapleton Reads. With Mapleton Reads, Mapleton hopes to bring the community together through literature.

This year’s titles include: Moon Over Manifest, by Clare Vanderpool, and The Girl Who Drank the Moon, by Kelly Barnhill.

Moon Over Manifest is a historical fiction story that follows a young and adventurous girl named Abilene who is determined to investigate more about the history of Manifest, Kansas, and the role her father played in that history.

The Girl Who Drank the Moon tells the story of how Luna, after being raised by a witch, must figure out how to handle the magical powers she was accidentally given.

Classroom sets of each book will be available at schools for students to check out and take home. Additionally, copies of both books will be available at the Administration Building (7350 N. Broadway, Denver) as we encourage staff, families and community members to join the fun and read along with us!
