Kids' Book Club

One of the primary reasons we started this group was to build empathy in our children. Volunteering is only one of the ways in which we are tackling this. We have partnered with BookPeople to launch a book club for kids (ages 8-12)! The books we select will tackle issues that our children face every day--from struggles in school, to bullying, to learning to love and accept themselves and others just as they are. We meet on the third Saturday each month at 12:30 in the 2nd floor Kids' Amphitheater at BookPeople.  Hope to see you there and Keep Reading!


October’s Selection

Our next Book Club selection is Guts by Raina Telgemeier.

"Raina Telgemeier once again brings us a thoughtful, charming, and funny true story about growing up and gathering the courage to face -- and conquer -- her fears. A true story from . . . the #1 New York Times bestselling, multiple Eisner Award-winning author of Smile, Sisters, Drama, and Ghosts!" - BookPeople

This month our meeting will be led by Rita Painter, an AISD Librarian and volunteer on the Children's Selection Committee for the Texas Book Festival. Author Raina Telgemeier will be a guest at this years’ Book Festival (October 26-27), so pick up a copy of her book and then head on over to our October meeting to discuss it and hear all about how you can see her (and maybe even get your book signed!).
