Book Club

2016-2017

Check out and sign up for GoodReads and add Kim Palmer and as your GoodReads Friend.

Book Club will meet in October in the library media center– Date to be determined.

From the bestselling author of The Silver Linings Playbook comes a heartfelt and unexpected novel in the vein of The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Nanette O’Hare is an unassuming teen who has played the role of dutiful daughter, hard-working student, and star athlete for as long as she can remember. But when a beloved teacher gives her his worn copy of The Bubblegum Reaper—the mysterious, out-of-print cult-classic—the rebel within Nanette awakens.

As she befriends the reclusive author, falls in love with a young troubled poet, and attempts to insert her true self into the world with wild abandon, Nanette learns the hard way that sometimes rebellion comes at a high price.

A celebration of the self and the formidable power of story, Every Exquisite Thing is Matthew Quick at his finest.

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 meet will meet  one Thursday 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 for a morning announcement for you to come and pick up the book.

Due to the 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.
