the holographic bookmark club
a monthly book club for (re)reading chapterbooks from childhood.
Introducing a new book club at the Endopolis Poetry Room.
The Holographic Bookmark Club is a monthly book club presented by Catherine Weiss and Lauren Ledoux for the purpose of (re)reading chapterbooks from childhood and using them as springboards to engage in lively yet significant discussions on topics of today and yesteryear.
We’ll meet once a month on a Wednesday evening (usually in the 2nd half of the month, depending on holidays and schedules). The next month’s book + discussion topic will be decided at the end of each meeting. We’re hoping to revisit both some respectable middle grade classics, as well as our fav tween guilty pleasure selections.
The Endopolis Poetry Room will make every effort to have at least one copy of the current book to make it available to participants to borrow and read during the month. The Holographic Bookmark Club is free to attend and both “90s kids” and “90s kids at heart” are welcome.
The first meeting will be held on Wednesday, August 21 at 7 PM.
Your votes were tallied at the results are in! The first Holographic Bookmark Club selection is….
Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt
What if you could live forever?
Is eternal life a blessing or a curse? That is what young Winnie Foster must decide when she discovers a spring on her family’s property whose waters grant immortality. Members of the Tuck family, having drunk from the spring, tell Winnie of their experiences watching life go by and never growing older.
But then Winnie must decide whether or not to keep the Tucks’ secret―and whether or not to join them on their never-ending journey.
We’ll be reading Tuck Everlasting in preparation for our first meeting and we hope you will join us! We encourage you to support local independent bookstores and make use of your local library! The Endopolis Poetry Room will also be acquiring at least one copy of Tuck Everlasting - if you’d like to borrow our copy, email Catherine!
