Book Clubs

Welcome to our Book Club page!   This page gives you an opportunity to extend your book clubs outside of the classroom!  One person in each group will post a question for the group to discuss. It is each book club member’s responsibility to answer the question with a detailed response. Don’t forget that you can use this page to ask clarifying questions about what you read and talk to your group about any connections you have.
