Dwight School Libraries
Trimester 2 Update
Book Clubs at Dwight!
In Timothy House, third and fourth graders have the option of joining a lunch time book club. Third graders are reading The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis and fourth graders are reading Pegasus: The Flame of Olympus by Kate O'Hearn.
This trimester the Middle and High School book club focused on fantasy. Everyone chose their own fantasy book to read and we spent our weekly meeting discussing what makes for a good fantasy and what our lives would be like if we lived in our books. Book Club members have also worked on displays for the library. Students organized March's book display of books with red covers under the theme, "Red Hot Books". They also worked on our "unknown book" project, covering books in wrapping paper to encourage students to take a chance on an book based only on a brief description.
Faculty also have the option to join a book club. This trimester we read Behind the Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo and Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Both books yielded great discussions, as well as many ideas for what to read next.
