We were so lucky to have Gail Carson Levine visit our first ever Reading Into History book club.
She read from her book Dave at Night and she told some cool stories about her dad. He grew up in the Hebrew Orphan Asylum in Harlem. We even got to see pictures of what it looked like back in 1925!
All of the book club members got to ask Gail questions too. Most of them wanted to know how she came up with the characters, like the evil Mr. Doom!
Thanks to Gail Carson Levine and all of our book club members to making the night so fun. We can’t wait to see you July 18 for Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson.
