Book Club Final Word 2018

Our Book Club had the opportunity to join with four other high school book clubs in the area at our 10th annual Final Word event.

Having all read the same ten books over the course of the year, students and librarians had the opportunity to discuss these books, debate their strengths and weaknesses, and engage in some healthy school to school competition in the form of a trivia game.

In addition, we had the privilege of hearing from Kenneth Oppel, the author of Every Hidden Thing–one of the novels on our list this year–who shared with us the interesting and sometimes humorous details about the background for his novel and his experience with the writing process. Kenneth Oppel is a prolific writer whose works are enjoyed around the globe, so meeting him was an exciting and unique opportunity for our book club members.

As always, the Final Word was a day full of new and unique insights and celebration of the love of literature!
