The next meeting of the Grades 7 and Up Book Club will be held on Wednesday, January 24 at 4:00 p.m. We will be discussing The Reader: Book One of The Sea of Ink and Gold.
"After her father is brutally murdered, Sefia flees into the wilderness with her aunt Nin, who teaches her to hunt, track, and steal. But when Nin is kidnapped none of her survival skills can help her discover where Nin's been taken, or if she's even alive. The only clue is the odd rectangular object her father left behind, an object she comes to realize is a book-- a marvelous item unheard of in her otherwise illiterate society. With the aid of a mysterious stranger with dark secrets of his own, Sefia sets out to rescue her aunt and find out what really happened the day her father was killed."-summary
We discuss the book for roughly 45 minutes, while Miss Lisa blogs our conversation, and spend the last 15 minutes voting on a book to read for the next book club."
Come join us for an afternoon of interesting book talk and snacks! Copies of the book are available at the Circulation Desk. Please be sure to register so that Miss Lisa knows how many tweens to expect!
