Guys Read Book Club – ICPL Field Office

by on October 25th, 2012

Hey all you guy readers out there, come join our newest book club!  Our mission is to match ICPL guys with books (and other readable things) in a fun, guys-only environment. With pizza of course!  Aimed at guys in Grades 5-8.

Guys Read, is a larger literacy initiative founded by children’s author Jon Scieszka, and is designed to draw attention to boys’ literacy and to help boys become self-motivated, lifelong readers.

No reservation required but if you think you’ll come then shoot me an email so I make sure to have enough food!

Our next meeting is this Saturday, October 27th from 12:00-1:00 p.m. upstairs in Meeting Room E (it’s along the back wall past the Computer Lab). We’ll be talking about the comic series Amulet by Kazu Kibuishi and/or The Templeton Twins Have An Idea by Ellis Weiner with illustrations by Jeremy Holmes.  Don’t worry if you haven’t read these before, we’ll be doing other things as well and will vote on titles for the next meeting in November!

Questions? Email Jason at teens[at] or call 319-887-6075.
