Kicking off the 2012 summer book club

The book club met for the first time yesterday. Melissa and I handed out the books (one group is starting with After Tupac and D Foster, the other with The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian), and we talked with the youth about what to expect from the book club. Melissa booktalked each of the titles, and then we had the youth read the first chapter and talked about their first impressions.

Both books seem to be engaging readers so far, and I’m looking forward to next Friday when youth will have read more and we can start to really get into discussing the books.
