Could You Have Said It Any Better…??

One of our new Summer Reading Book Clubs read Tell by Norah McClintock this week. We, as book discussion leaders, felt that it might be important for some of the students to express their perceptions of the book via art and poetry. Sometimes, you know, the right words get stuck in your throat or jumbled in your head when it is your turn to speak.
If this illustration by one of the students at McCracken Regional Juvenile Detention Center is any indication, I think our feelings were right.
The book clubs at the facility for at-risk teens are a follow-up to our very positive experience during last fall’s Great Stories Book Discussion Club. McCracken County Public Library has teamed with local volunteers to provide six weeks of programming at the juvenile detention center during their summer school break.
