November 17 Book Club Pick: Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan

Book Club is reading Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan for the second discussion this year; all are welcome to join the discussion after school in the library on Thursday, November 17. If you need a copy, speak with Ms. Charpentier or visit the Uxbridge Free Public Library.

The meetings for the rest of first semester are:
