West Fargo-Moorhead Book Club Opportunity




A note from coordinator Dan Dooher:

For the last three years a group of Horizon Middle School (Moorhead) teachers have formed a book club that focuses on Middle Grade & Young Adult books. In conjunction with the RRVWP, I'd like to invite you and your colleagues in or near the FM area to join us for great books, relaxed discussion, food, and general merriment.

We meet once a month at Ushers in Moorhead from 4:30-6:00pm beginning Sept. 26 this year. During any given book club meeting we discuss our book for the month, its ideal audience, and potential classroom applications. As September can be quite busy, we plan to start with a graphic novel to ease our way into the year.

Below is a link to our book club schedule for this year:

We'd love to have you join us.

If you are interested please contact me, Dan Dooher ('13 Fargo Summer Institute). (Please see the listserv post for Dan's email address.)

Welcome to the first Writing Weekend prompt post! If you are one of our blog readers who is looking to do some of your own writing on the weekend but need a prompt to get you started, this is for you. Every Saturday we will post a prompt that you can use to get your creative juices flowing, trigger your memory, lead you to new contemplations, get your thoughts on paper or screen. So, let's write!

Prompt: Write about the largest crowd you've ever been a part of. (From The Writer's Block by Jason Rekulak)
