Coming Up Next

The Chicks will be reading Meg Rosoff's Printz Award-winning How I Live Now for the
November 23 meeting. Mark your calendars! Also, we'll be meeting on December 14 to discuss the next book and have our annual holiday party.
Twenty-two people signed out The Minister's Daughter. I thought this was probably the most challenging book we've read in the four years of Chick Lit. Featuring fairies, piskies, accusations of witchcraft, sexual awakening, political upheaval and religious turmoil, it was not exactly easy reading. But for those who finished it, it provided a lot of issues to think and talk about. Thanks to Kristi's mom for the fabulous pumpkin cookies, and Lani and Hattie for the other delicious treats. The student assistants came up with artistic, thoughtful questions. You girls make every meeting interesting.
We welcomed two new members, senior Brittany Brady and freshman Ruth Leopold. The more the merrier! If you'd like us to invite anyone else to join us, please let Mrs. Deraps or Mrs. Robinson know.
If you've still got The Minister's Daughter, please return it ASAP to the library. If you have any comments about the book or the group, you can post them here. See you soon!

Hi! I wrote a post about "How I Live Now" in October on our Mainely Girls blog. I found a neat video clip to go with it. If your girls are interested, you can take a look, and they are welcome to comment. Thanks so much!
