All students are invited to take part in the Authors in April Book Club. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet other students who enjoy reading and discussing books together. The Hart Book Club will meet four times at Hart after school in the Media Center (2:30pm - 3:30pm) on Wednesdays March 1, March 8, March 15, and March 22 to explore Christina Soontornvat's book The Last Mapmaker. The cost is $15 which includes a hardcover copy of the book and snacks each week (and only $5 if you already own the book!). 
 Students will:

  • Receive a book club guide that will outline the reading assignment each week.
  • Engage in fun activities designed to think more deeply about the issues raised in the book.
  • Participate in small and large group discussions about the book, its themes focusing on students’ impressions of the story, and its characters. 

The deadline to sign up and submit payment is Friday, February 10th. Space is limited so sign up today!
