October 16 Book Club Pick

Join Book Club for the first discussion of the 2014 - 2015 school year at 2:00 on Thursday, October 16. We'll be discussing The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne.

From Goodreads: Berlin, 1942. When Bruno returns home from school one day, he discovers that his belongings are being packed in crates. His father has received a promotion and the family must move from their home to a new house far far away, where there is no one to play with and nothing to do. A tall fence running alongside stretches as far as the eye can see and cuts him off from the strange people he can see in the distance. But Bruno longs to be an explorer and decides that there must be more to this desolate new place than meets the eye. While exploring his new environment, he meets another boy whose life and circumstances are very different to his own, and their meeting results in a friendship that has devastating consequences.

Copies will be available in the library beginning next week. If you have any questions about Book Club, talk to Ms. Charpentier.

Doesn't sound like the book for you? We'll also be discussing My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George on November 13, The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien on December 11, and The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor on January 8. If you'd like to get involved in choosing books for second semester, join us for the December meeting.
