Like reading? Like learning about life in other places and times? We’ve got just the club for you! Join us for our Books Beyond Borders book club in which we’ll travel through time and place to better understand our present world. Each month, read the selected book and then we’ll meet to discuss it and do a fun related craft or writing activity. Occasional special guests will include the book’s author or a visitor from the culture or time we’ve read about. Open to 5th-8th graders.  

January 14—The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, by William Kamkwamba
February 9—Letters From Cuba, by Ruth Behar (*Author visit!*)
March 9–Blue Willow, by Doris Gates
April 13th–My Fate According to the Butterfly, by Gail Villanueva
May 11th–Leaving Lymon, by Lesa Cline-Ransome
