INBETWEEN THE PAGES Book Discussion Group

  • Shelby County Public Library 57 West Broadway Street Shelbyville, IN, 46176 United States (map)

This book discussion group is geared toward those in 3rd-6th grades. Every third Thursday of the month at 4:30 p.m. we'll talk about the book we picked out and you'll get a book to take with you to read for the next month. We'll also have an activity or a craft to go along with it and snacks.

Anyone is welcome to attend and check it out! Books are chosen based on common interests for the age group and reading level. Often, book options are provided by the librarian and choices are made by votes. Sometimes, the librarian chooses the material. 

Brandy Graves, Department Head of Youth Services, will lead the discussions. Questions? (317) 398-7121 ext. 230 or bgraves@sscpl.lib.in.us.


AUGUST BOOK:

WISHTREE by Katharine Applegate

Trees can’t tell jokes, but they can certainly tell stories. . . .

Red is an oak tree who is many rings old. Red is the neighborhood “wishtree”—people write their wishes on pieces of cloth and tie them to Red’s branches. Along with her crow friend Bongo and other animals who seek refuge in Red’s hollows, this “wishtree” watches over the neighborhood.

You might say Red has seen it all. Until a new family moves in. Not everyone is welcoming, and Red’s experiences as a wishtree are more important than ever. . . .
