A new book club for homeschoolers ages 12 to 16! This is a chance to socialize with other readers and practice respecting opinions while discussing a variety of topics. We will be reading "Stargirl" by Jerry Spinelli. Leo Borlock follows the unspoken rule at Mica Area High School: don't stand out--under any circumstances! Then Stargirl arrives at Mica High and everything changes--for Leo and for the entire school. After 15 years of home schooling, Stargirl bursts into tenth grade in an explosion of color and a clatter of ukulele music, enchanting the Mica student body. But the delicate scales of popularity suddenly shift, and Stargirl is shunned for everything that makes her different. Somewhere in the midst of Stargirl's arrival and rise and fall, normal Leo Borlock has tumbled into love with her. Registration begins at the Information Desk on October 7th at 9:00 am.

Join us as we discuss this month's book: "A Tale Dark and Grimm" by Adam Gidwitz. Hansel and Gretel walk out of their own story and into eight other classic Grimm (and Grimm-inspired) fairy tales. An irreverent, witty narrator leads us through encounters with witches, warlocks, dragons, and the devil himself. As the siblings roam a forest brimming with menacing foes, they learn the true story behind the famous tales, as well as how to take charge of their destinies and create their own happily ever after. Because once upon a time, fairy tales were awesome. Registration begins October 3rd at the Information Desk.
