Calling all Book Worms


Kristina Plaskett, Author

If you like to read and want to read more books other than the ones assigned at school then you should consider LC’s new book club formed by Mrs. Kathryn Clark, English, and Mrs. Elana Arens from the library.

“I started because two students, [Joseph Pavell (11)] and[ Eva Kimberly (11),] approached me before school one day and they said to me that they wanted to do more reading than they normally do at school so they wanted the opportunity to read extra books so they wanted to start a book club and they thought that I would be a good person to get it started,” Mrs. Clark said.

Currently the book club is small, but will take more students if more want to join.

“I think it’s just a good opportunity for people to read a book that  is not required by LC, you know, a book that maybe is not all about death because that’s what we tend to focus on with our books here, although In Cold Blood is not exactly a happy book by any stretch. I think it will just be nice to like actually sit down and talk to students who genuinely love to read because when you are teaching a class you don’t always see that,” Clark said.

The book that the club is reading right now is In Cold Blood by Truman Capote which focuses on the 1959 murders of Herbert Clutter, his wife, and two of his four children in Holcomb, Kansas.

If you are interested in the book, you can contact Mrs. Clark in room C318 or Mrs. Arens in the library. The club meets on the fourth Tuesday of every month in the library.
