de Grummond Book Group to discuss Inside Out and Back Again
Join us Thursday, October 16, 2014, for the de Grummond Book Group. Each month we meet to discuss influential works of children's and young adult literature. At the October meeting, we will discuss Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai. It is a novel in verse, and not only did it receive a Newbery Honor in 2011, it also won a National Book Award.
The de Grummond Book Group meets on the third Thursday of each month from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the de Grummond Exhibit Room on the second floor of Cook Library (between the Library Administration office and the School of Library and Information Science). Adults interested in reading and discussing children’s literature are welcome.
