Book Club

We had a great book club meeting today about The Quirks. We got to skype with the author. She was fantastic! First she told us a little bit about the book and how she ended up writing it. I had given her a head's up about some of the questions and discussions I had had with students along the way - so she covered those things. We got to see pictures of her kids and art her kids have drawn. We got to see her dog. We got to see her office and the bookcase full of books she has written. We got to ask questions too. I think the kids could have continued talking to her for another hour. It was really great!

She asked us about the books we had read and we found out that she lives near Kate DiCamillo and they sometimes walk their dogs together. Amazing!!
