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.


JULY BOOK:

BECAUSE OF WINN DIXIE by Kate DiCamillo

Kate DiCamillo’s first published novel, like Winn-Dixie himself, immediately proved to be a keeper — a New York Times bestseller, a Newbery Honor winner, the inspiration for a popular film, and most especially, a cherished classic that touches the hearts of readers of all ages. It’s now available in a paperback digest format certain to bring this tale’s magic to an even wider circle of fans.

The summer Opal and her father, the preacher, move to Naomi, Florida, Opal goes into the Winn-Dixie supermarket—and comes out with a dog. A big, ugly, suffering dog with a sterling sense of humor. A dog she dubs Winn-Dixie. Because of Winn-Dixie, the preacher tells Opal ten things about her absent mother, one for each year Opal has been alive . . .
