Campus Book Club News

                              
The Hamilton Roddis Memorial Library is CELEBRATING its Book Club's 3rd year of existence on November 27th, 2017 at 6:00 p.m.! Check out this List of books we have read in the past 3 years. For our next meeting, we will be reading Wonder by  R. J. Palacio

Wonder by R.J. Palacio  Wonder is a rare gem of a novel--beautifully written and populated by characters who linger in your memory and heart. August Pullman is a 10-year-old boy who likes Star Wars and Xbox, ordinary except for his jarring facial anomalies. Homeschooled all his life, August heads to public school for fifth grade and he is not the only one changed by the experience--something we learn about first-hand through the narratives of those who orbit his world.

August’s internal dialogue and interactions with students and family ring true, and though remarkably courageous he comes across as a sweet, funny boy who wants the same things others want: friendship, understanding, and the freedom to be himself. “It is only with one’s heart that one can see clearly. What is essential is invisible to the eye.” From The Little Prince and R.J. Palacio’s remarkable novel, Wonder.--Seira Wilson
