About the Event
This is a book club for all middle schoolers! We chose the name “Baker Street Bookclub” in reference to 221b Baker Street from the Sherlock Holmes book series. We hope to make reading fun and interesting through a series of hands-on projects and discussions. Our first read will be Holes by Louis Sachar, a classic novel filled with laughs that also examines relevant issues in our world today!
