First Meeting Huge Success!

Some hardcore kids book fans made it to 706 Greenwood last Wednesday night. Thanks for coming Cathleen, Gbemi, Erin, and Kristine! I know so many of you are trying to fit this group into your schedules, so know that you will have a solid and enthusiastic bunch to welcome you when you are able to join us. Wednesdays are hard for a couple of people, so the next meeting will be on a Thursday. Erin will be hosting on March 15. Details to follow.

Dead End in Norvelt by Jack Gantos was SOLD OUT following his Newbery Medal win last month! Because most of us were unable to get our hands on it, we decided to discuss it at the next meeting. I was lucky enough to finish it, and adored it. I was then psyched to read a memoir of his teen years called A Hole in My Life. What a great book to recommend to older teen boys! Amazing.

I am so happy more of you are determined to join bklyn kids books. I think it is going to be incredibly rewarding and a lot of fun.

Next Meeting MARCH 15, 2012!
