We will be taking a hiatus from bookgroups during the Summer (July and August). Never fear, we shall return! If you participated in the last couple of bookgroups expect a call from us in late July for the Individual group and late August for the Family group. We will let you know the next bookgroup title and when the first meeting of the 13-14 school year will occur. If you didn’t participate during the 12-13 school year, give us a call or stop by to have your name added to the bookgroup list and you too will get a call. In the meantime, keep reading – we’d love to hear about what you read on your own during the Summer!
Our selection criteria is very broad and often based on recommendations from our current book club participants. Each school year we try to read the Newbury award winner from the previous year as well as at least one book from the current Massachusetts Children’s Book Award list. We have frequently read books that are about to be turned into movies. Selections need to be available in paperback and appeal to a wide audience. We’ve read everything from graphic novels to school stories, non-fiction to science fiction. Got a book you’d like to discuss? Bring it up at the next book club!
