Thursday Book Clubs
Teen Blind Date Book Club | 6th Grade & up | 4:00-5:00
A white elephant style book club with a twist. Girls will choose from a selection of award winning books wrapped in craft paper to conceal their titles. Once opened, each person can choose to either keep the title or steal one from their neighbor. Participants will have four weeks to finish their books before turning them in for the next round. If the book is finished before the deadline, the reader may trade it in for another title which they can select for themselves. Each month we will start again with a new exchange, with plenty of snacks and conversation thrown in for good measure.
