 Cartoon phoenix The Phoenix Book Club - 5th through 8th graders
Meets the second Tuesday of each month. 7:00 p.m.
Each month a new theme or genre is selected. Children choose their own books from a prepared list and share their thoughts on the book they read and the theme or genre. In the summer specific titles are discussed.
June: Tuesday, 6/9 - 7:00 p.m.
Theme: Superheroes and Superpowers
Characters who can fly, use x-ray vision, talk to animals, turn invisible and more have super powers. Were they born with them or do they happen later? Is it magic or science? And do they use their powers for good or evil? Grab a book with a superpowered character (or more than one!) and join us to talk about it and get ready for this summer's theme: Every Hero Has a Story!  
  Check back in June for July and August's summer book club titles!
