Book Club will meet February 19th in the library media center– .
Your mother hollers that youre going to miss the bus She can see it coming down the street You dont stop and hug her and tell her you love her You dont thank her for being a good kind patient mother Of course not-you launch yourself down the stairs and make a run for the corner Only if its the last time youll ever see your mother you sort of start to wish youd stopped and did those things Maybe even missed the bus But the bus was barreling down our street so I ran Fourteen kids One superstore A million things that go wrong In Emmy Laybournes action-packed debut novel Monument 14 six high school kids some popular some not two eighth graders one a tech genius and six little kids trapped together in a chain superstore build a refuge for themselves inside While outside a series of escalating disasters beginning with a monster hailstorm and ending with a chemical weapons spill seems to be tearing the world-as they know it-apart
Book Club is open to everyone. Please come to the library media center to sign up or if you have any questions.
As a member of the Book Club, you receive this book free of charge, with the understanding that if you can not attend the scheduled meeting, for any reason, you will be charged for my cost of the book.
Book club will meet one Monday per month, immediately after school in the Library Media Center. Book club lasts for about 1 to 1 ½ hours.
As soon as all the copies of the book come in, I will choose a date for each meeting. You will receive an email and listen to morning announcements for you to come and pick up the book.
Due to a large number of book club members, if you do not attend the meeting because you have a previous commitment, we will charge you our cost of the book. You might want to consider borrowing a book from someone or taking out a Library copy if you might not be able to attend the meeting for any reason. I CAN’T accept returned books in perfect condition because it has caused me to lose money from Toadstool.
We have snacks and drinks at each meeting. Please be willing to volunteer to bring something in on occasion so that not one person is always bringing in snacks.
Mrs. Palmer & Mrs. McNally
