So I’m bringing book club back. The middle school book club to be exact. We’re going to talk about a particular book each month usually, but this first meeting will just be about getting to know each others’ reading habits and favorite books, so there is no pressure or anything. We also need to pick a name, so we’ll probs do that too. So join us if you’re in grades 5-8! And a side note for high schoolers: If you want a book club too, all you have to do is ask! :)
Friday, April 12, 3-3:45 p.m. in the Hollis Room at the Gleason Library.
There will be snacks.
Also, I’ve decided to name this little guy Winston. I wish he belonged to me, but alas he does not.
I’ve managed to finish two more books on the list this week. The first is Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple, which won an Alex Award this year (those are for books published for adults that are appealing to teens). Great, fun story told mostly in letters, e-mails, and a little first-person narration from Bee, Bernadette’s teenage daughter.
The second one is Sparks: The Epic, Completely True Blue, (Almost) Holy Quest of Debbie by S.J. Adams, which won a Stonewall Honor this year. Not my favorite, but funny, and it gives you some things to think about too.
Anyone else making progress?
