Our final meeting of the year is going to be a big one!  We will be voting on books to read next year (when we start back up in September), having a celebration for the graduating seniors, feasting over pizza and soda, and (if we have time), discussing Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern:

Born with cerebral palsy, Amy can't walk without a walker, talk without a voice box, or even fully control her facial expressions. Plagued by obsessive-compulsive disorder, Matthew is consumed with repeated thoughts, neurotic rituals, and crippling fear. Both in desperate need of someone to help them reach out to the world, Amy and Matthew are more alike than either ever realized.

When Amy decides to hire student aides to help her in her senior year at Coral Hills High School, these two teens are thrust into each other's lives. As they begin to spend time with each other, what started as a blossoming friendship eventually grows into something neither expected.

Come join the fun and especialy help plan our book list for next year! 

This is open to everyone in grades 7-12 - new members are always welcome!!

Spring Series: Africa -- Colonialism & Beyond
The history of Africa has been overshadowed over the last 200 years by the European colonization that dominated all parts of the continent.  This is a huge story, and one that is often not very well understood by Americans.  We take a very brief look at the experience of Africa from the perspective of colonialism and its effect on blacks and whites.  

Toight's selection: Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight  by Alexandra Fuller
This is an intensely moving journey through a white African girl's childhood. Fuller was brought up in Africa during the Rhodesian civil war (1971-1979), a world where children over five learned how to load a rifle, clean all the guns in the house, and shoot-to-kill.  The narrative focuses on the wartime relationships between blacks and whites through a child's watchful eyes.

Troubadours and Troublemakers: The Music and Politics of Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger and Bob Dylan

This presentation will examine three of the greatest protest singers of the twentieth century: Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger and Bob Dylan.
Using recorded music, film clips and still images, we will take an American journey through history and geography. We will start by using music to examine the social and economic conditions of the Great Depression as we follow Woody Guthrie through the Dust Bowl. We will then travel across the United States as Woody works his way to New York City where we meet Peter Seeger. We'll leave Woody to follow the travels of Pete as he sings his way through the American heartland, World War II, McCarthyism, the Civil Rights movement and the 1950s folk revival where we meet Bob Dylan. We will then leave Pete to examine Dylan's songs that outlines the social and political conditions in the 60s. We will examine Dylan's evolution to rock and roll and end with his classic performance at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival.
