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.


FEBRUARY BOOK:

THE BOY WHO SWAM WITH PIRANHAS
by David Almond, Oliver Jeffers

Stanley Potts’s uncle Ernie has developed an over-the-top fascination with canning fish in the house, and life at 69 Fish Quay Lane has turned barmy. But there’s darkness in the madness, and when Uncle Ernie’s obsession takes an unexpectedly cruel turn, Stan has no choice but to leave. As he journeys away from the life he’s always known, he mingles with a carnival full of eccentric characters and meets the legendary Pancho Pirelli, the man who swims in a tank full of perilous piranhas. Will Stan be bold enough to dive in the churning waters himself and choose his own destiny?...
