GMS Staff Book Club /Winter 2019

How It Works:

1-You pick a current book (published in 2018 or 2019) that is either a middle school title, a Young Adult title, or an adult book. Please stop in to borrow new titles from our library which just arrived! You can check to see if your pick is in the catalog by clicking this link.


2-You read the book over the winter break (February 16th- February 23rd).


3-Before we meet, you write a brief summary of the book (just a few sentences) and explain why you would or would not recommend it. A Google Form will be shared with you.


4-You share out your brief summary (two minutes or less) at our round table book discussion. The discussion will happen in the Gananda Middle School Library in early March. The date/time will be determined based on participants’ schedules. The discussion is meant to be casual and fun. Snacks will be provided.
