Book: Say What by Margaret Peterson Haddix
|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.
|April:||Tuesday, 4/14 - 7:00 p.m.
Theme: Poetry and Novels in Verse
Head down to the 811s and 821s in our nonfiction to find a book of poems (any book of poems!) or use our catalog to look up "novels in verse" for our National Poetry Month meeting in April. If you go with a book of poetry it's up to you if you read it all. If you read a novel in verse you'll want to try and finish so you read the whole story even if it is told through poems.
