Our next Book Club meeting is on Wednesday, November 1st, at 7:00 p.m. (The Book Club regularly meets on the first Wednesday of the month.) You may attend in person at the library, or via Zoom; e-mail Clara at firstname.lastname@example.org to request the Zoom link.
For November, the book we will be discussing is We Still Belong by Christine Day, a junior-level novel.
Today is a big day for Wesley Wilder. Her poem about Indigenous Peoples’ Day will be printed in the school newspaper–and she also has a plan to ask her crush, fellow gamer Ryan, to go with her to the school dance. But from the moment she boards the morning bus, Wesley’s day starts to unravel…
Author Day assures readers that even with all the very real problems they face, they are worthy, their voices matter – and they belong.
We Still Belong is an accessible, enjoyable, and important novel from an author who always delivers.
