Another Shade of Blue Book Club

Are you a book lover? Would you rather read than anything else? We'd love for you to join us at Another Shade of Blue, our book club for middle grade boys and girls in 4th through 6th grade. We meet the last Saturday of each month (or sometimes other Saturdays) at 10 a.m to discuss particular books, books that you are reading, and a few books that aren't even out in the wild yet!

Our next books:

Rick Riordan Presents Yoon Ha Lee's space opera about thirteen-year-old Min, who comes from a long line of fox spirits. But you'd never know it by looking at her.
