If you happen to be in the library on the last Wednesday of any month, around 4pm, you’ll likely see a herd of teens hanging out, waiting for book club to start. It’s not unusual to have teens in the library at all…but the sheer number converging on one room is often a bit of a surprise for some.
We regularly have about 13 – 15 teens who attend. Each month, we read a different book, then get together to talk about it (and other things), and eat snacks. Lots of snacks. It’s a fun session, and I always learn something–either about the world, about the teens, or the world they function in.
This month, we were discussing Tui T. Sutherland’s WINGS OF FIRE : THE DRAGONET PROPHECY, but oh, we discussed much more.
- Elon Musk
- Dragons (of course)
- Manga rules
- Iced Tea vs. other drinks
- Mars colonization
- The White House
- DANTE’S INFERNO
All very important things to think about.
