Middle School Book Club - Because Of Winn Dixie

Add to Your Calendar: 10/10/2019 12:30 10/10/2019 14:00 America/New_York Middle School Book Club - Because Of Winn Dixie

Welcome to the first meeting of this years book club for the middle school set!  We will be reading Because of Winn Dixie by Kate DiCamillo.

About the book

One summer’s day, ten-year-old India Opal Buloni goes down to the local supermarket for some groceries – and comes home with a dog. But Winn-Dixie is no ordinary dog. It’s because of Winn-Dixie that Opal begins to make friends. And it’s because of Winn-Dixie that she finally dares to ask her father about her mother, who left when Opal was three. In fact, as Opal admits, just about everything that happens that summer is because of Winn-Dixie.—Amazon

Typically everyone reads the book prior to meeting.  We get together to discuss the story and ask some questions. What did you like? Who was your favorite character, and why? If it ties in with the story, sometimes we’ll have an activity...but there’s always snacks!  This group is geared toward 5th-8th grade, but everyone that enjoys a good story is welcome!

Come join us in reading this wonderful story of friendship. 

ETA: We will be making “mistake bottles”.  Plan to bring an empty drink bottle with a lid for the project. Don’t know what a mistake bottle is?  You will once you read the book!
