Tap In Book Club at the Center for Children’s Books

This semester, the Center for Children’s Books outreach program has worked with Mix IT Up! partner Tap In Leadership Academy to hold a book club for twelve middle-school girls. Over the course of four weeks, we read Drama by Raina Telgemeier, a graphic novel about a middle school play production and the drama that comes along with it. We met as a group each week to discuss the book, and the book club posted their responses to questions on a book blog, tapinbookclub.wordpress.com. The book has inspired conversations about transformative moments from our childhoods, dealing with the problems of middle school, and how to review a book. We invite you to check out their responses! Next semester, the book club will reconvene to investigate multicultural illustrated books, and we will continue to update the book blog.
