Monday February 29th
Stop by the library and pick up your copy of this months book. OnFebruary 29th,we’ll meet to have a discussion and share our thoughts on what we’ve read.
                “Ten-year-old Star Mackie lives in a trailer park with her flaky mom and her melancholy older sister, Winter, whom Star idolizes. Moving to a new town has made it difficult for Star to make friends, when her classmates tease her because of where she lives and because of her layered blue hair. But when Star starts a poetry club, she develops a love of Emily Dickinson and, through Dickinson’s poetry, learns some important lessons about herself and comes to terms with her hopes for the future.”*
