Book Club Final Word

Some of you may know about the HD Book Club, and that every year, whoever reads at least five of the books and attends at least five meetings can attend The Final Word. This year, we had the opportunity to speak with Karen Bass, author of Two Times a Traitor.

What you may not know is just how huge this event is. Every year, we at HD get together with London, Toronto, Durham and Woodland Christian High Schools (who have been reading the same books as us) for this monumental event. Also we have heated (but still fun!) competitions relating to the books we’ve read over the past year.

We had pictures taken with Karen Bass and we had our books signed. At the end of the day, we got to see which book was the favourite of all the Book Clubs – this year’s winner was R. J. Anderson’s Ultraviolet. To me, The Final Word really sums up what Book Club, and reading in general, is all about: giving us the chance to connect with each other on a deeper level on something that we all love.
