Page By page Book Club
Page by Page, the intermediate ELL book club, meets every Wednesday at 1 pm on Zoom. Each week, we discuss a few chapters from the book until we have read it all the way through.
We’ll read about 30 pages a week of this book starting August 2, 2023. Copies to keep are available at the Reader’s Advisory Desk, and ebook and audiobook versions are also available through Libby.
