Lit Masters Book Club: Gathering to Discuss Great Books

This semester all students were invited to join our new book club, Lit Masters. Meeting once a month during a Wednesday homeroom, our group gathers to discuss each month's selected title. This past quarter, our group read Okay for Now by Gary D. Schmidt and Jack's Run by Roland Smith. We will meet again this month to discuss Full Tilt by Neal Shusterman and then once in June to have an end-of-the-year celebration. All students who love reading and want to meet with a group of like-minded students are encouraged to sign up for book club when we resume again in September.
