February Book Club

The theme for this month’s Book Club was Award Winners. Ms. Melinson shared several books that won various ALA Youth Media Awards: Monday’s Not Coming, The Faithful Spy, Educated, Sadie, Circe, The Astonishing Color of After, I, Claudia, A Heart in the Body in the World, and The Poet X. Ms. Melinson also talked about “closely reading” Future Perfect (and showed off her sticky note-filled book) because she interviewed the author, Victoria Loustalot. Heloise talked about reading The People’s History of the United States, which she found fascinating even if U.S. isn’t your thing. However, she warned to be prepared for footnotes. Sanjana read Love, Hate, and Other Filters and loved it – so much so that she had a hard time putting it down to study for finals. Avi read a paper about how free speech has evolved, a topic that relates to his Sophomore Project. This was the Book Club to attend if you’re a Sophomore in need of source help!
