Thank you to all who came to our October discussion of The Wednesday Wars! After our discussion, we talked about the service project to help an 8th grade ELA/Reading teacher who lost her classroom library due to Hurricane Harvey. Middle School students are asked to bring a new paperback book that would interest 8th graders. The due date is Friday, Nov. 3. Along with Builders Club, we hope to collect at least 35 new books to send to this teacher!
Before leaving, we had a cream puff treat, just like Mrs. Baker provided for Holling's class.
Next up - Summerlost by Ally Condie.
It's the first real summer since the accident that killed Cedar's father and younger brother, Ben. Cedar and what’s left of her family are returning to the town of Iron Creek for the summer. They’re just settling into their new house when a boy named Leo, dressed in costume, rides by on his bike. Intrigued, Cedar follows him to the renowned Summerlost theatre festival. Soon, she not only has a new friend in Leo and a job working concessions at the festival, she finds herself surrounded by mystery. The mystery of the tragic, too-short life of the Hollywood actress who haunts the halls of Summerlost. And the mystery of the strange gifts that keep appearing for Cedar. (from barnesandnoble.com)
Mrs. Dill has a few more books for anyone who would like to join our group. Stop by the library and pick up a book.
