Meet in the Middle Book Club

for Grownups

Welcome to the Meet in the Middle Book Club, a middle-grade fiction book club for the adults who love kid lit. If growing up has never seemed fun to you, you’re in the right spot. Once a month we’ll read and explore some of the best middle-grade (8 to 12-year-old protagonists usually) books out there. Reach out to Rebecca Blake at rebecca59145@gmail.com if you’d like to learn more and if you know big things come in small packages.

We’re meeting next on Saturday, May 18th at 6:30pm to discuss The Magician's Elephant by Kate DiCamillo.

In June, we will meet Saturday, June 29th at 6:30pm to discuss The Language of Seabirds by Will Taylor.
