    Nearly 50 students, staff, parents and community members came together, Nov. 19th for Dr. Seinfeld's 11th Community Book Club! Participants enjoyed an evening of conversation and comradery after reading the book,  I am Malala: How One Girl Stood Up for Education and Changed the World.  Complementing the evening, participants watched an interview of Malala with Jon Stewart of The Daily Show and were given a website link featuring dozens of real-life stories about how Malala's courage inspired them to overcome adversity in their own lives. Check it out at https://assembly.malala.org/stories/

     

    At Dr. Seinfeld's 10th Community Book Club last spring, the book Counting by 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan was discussed and participants were treated to a virtual visit from the author herself!

    The book club, generally open to students in third grade and up, was for the first time introduced to second graders with a tailored version called A Taste of Dr. Seinfeld's Community Book Club. The event was hosted by Roosevelt Elementary School Library Media Specialist Roseann Davidson and Literacy Coach Chris Bartell to get students excited about the opportunity of participating next year.  Click here for Dr. Seinfeld's video book club message to Roosevelt second graders.
