COURSE DETAILS: “Reading one book is like eating one potato chip” Diane Duane. This course is an opportunity to meet new people, explore places, learn about different cultures and hopefully fall in love with books. Along the way will be crafts, food, and even some grammar thrown in. We will go down “rabbit trails”. These are topics we explore that are tangential to the story. There will be projects as we go. The adventures that books offer are limitless. So, come along on the journey as we read such books as The Boys in the Boat, A Wrinkle in Time, Where the Red Fern Grows, Enola Holmes, Number the Stars.
