Bookshop Introduction Project

For our first Bookshop, as an introduction to ourselves, we went over our likes and dislikes. The main character in Absolutely Almost by Lisa Graff, Albie, makes it very clear what he likes (DONUTS) and doesn't like (MATH) throughout the book. 

For our next meeting we will be reading and discussing The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell by Chris Colfer and taking on a new project.  Will it be a podcast? A book trailer? Animation?  You'll have to attend to find out!  Copies of The Land of Stories are available for new members!

I like.

I like. I dislike.

I like. I dislike.

Mare's War

Bookshop read the book Mare's War by Tanita S. Davis in February. A pair of sisters are sour about spending the summer on a cross country roadtrip with their unconventional grandmother, Mare. Over the course of the trip, Mare tells her granddaughters about how she ran away from home as a teenager in Louisiana and joined the Women's Army Corps. As she describes the challenges she faced as a woman and an African American in the war, her granddaughter's view of their kooky grandma begins to shift.

Over the course of two sessions, Bookshoppers put together a trailer for the book. Enjoy!
