Student Book Club

Meets on the last Friday of the month at 2:15 in the Media Center The purpose of the GHS Student Book Club is to promote a wide reading of books and for members to share their reactions and other reading recommendations within a community of readers. Ms. Currie-Scott selects several of the Black Eyed Susan nominees to begin the year, and then students present works they have read or heard about to the group to consider. Selections are chosen by majority vote. Meetings are usually the last Friday of the month at 2:15 in the library, and Ms. Currie-Scott always serves lots of snacks! Members contribute to an online wiki, talk about the book just read, and present their recommendations at the meetings. Ms. Currie-Scott gathers the books from several libraries and distributes these to students. At the end of the year, the Howard County Public Library gives a special presentation on books exclusively to our book club, in order to give members lots of titles to preview for their summer reading.
