Reading Club Kicks Off New Year

An ancient society meets Google
in the quest for immortality.
As announced in Monday Morning Meeting today, the high school reading club will meet for the first time this school year on Friday, October 11.  We chose Friday because a) nobody has to run right home to do homework for the next day, and b) it's the least likely day for a team practice.

We're reading the highly lauded Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore, an Alex Award winner, a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for First Fiction, and a Best Book of the Year by several major media outlets, including NPR (review here).

The novel is available in paperback & ebook versions, the Paideia Library owns  hardback, book-on-CD and downloadable audiobook copies, and we'll also have a few extra paperbacks to loan.

After school (probably 3:15 pm), Friday, October 11, in the 'old elementary library.'  There will be snacks!

E-mail or come see me in the library, or talk to Clare U. (10th grade) or Julia C. (9th grade) for more info.  See you there.

Have you read it already? What did you think??
