It’s nearly back to school time—yikes! In honor of all the teachers, librarians, parents, and oh yes, KIDS preparing for the first day of school we will be reading with that theme in mind for the first Butler Book Banter of the academic year on Thursday, September 6th.
So whether you’re looking for friendship, perseverance, and heart in your stories or mean girls, homework overload, and scaredy ninjas (oh my!), we’ve got the book for you!
Young Adult: People Like Us by Dana Mele (Putnam, February 2018)
Middle Grade: Class Action by Steven B. Frank (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, April 2018)
Picture Book: The Secrets of Ninja School by Deb Pilutti (Henry Holt, March 2018)
There are always a bus-load of school themed books this time of year, so if you have a new favorite that’s not on our list, bring it for show and tell.
Please note, we’re making some small adjustments to planning this semester by shifting the meeting time to snacks at 6:30 p.m. and discussion from 7-8 p.m. Also, drop us an RSVP note at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment to whichever social media post you happen to be reading.
See you in September,
