Afternoon Book Club
The Afternoon Book Club will be reading Wonder by R. J. Palacio. Wonder is the 2014 Fox Cities Reads selection. Read the book and join in community-wide discussions leading up to the author's visit to the Fox Cities, April 9-10, 2014.
Ten-year-old Auggie Pullman, who was born with extreme facial abnormalities and was not expected to survive, goes from being home-schooled to entering fifth grade at a private middle school in Manhattan, which entails enduring the taunting and fear of his clasassmates as he struggles to be seen as just another student.
This book was written for middle school ages, but is enjoyable for all ages and walks of life. Read it together with your family!
