Skyped Author Visit - Paul Volponi - Big Success!

Last Wednesday, March 25, Our Library Lunchtime Book Club (affectionately known as the BYOB aka Bring Your Own Book Club met up for the entire 3rd block to host a virtual visit by SCYABA 13-14 Nominee The Final Four author Paul Volponi. We treated this like an in house field trip, bringing our three lunch groups together for one large meeting. Due to conflicting schedules, we had to relocate to the rehearsal room to have our skype visitor, author Paul Volponi.  
We began our book club meting with lunch that included Papa John's Pizza, chips, Girl Scout Cookies, and water. We then played a game of The Final Four bingo.  And finally we regrouped to talk with Paul Volponi. Our kids really responded well to the visit, and have been in the library demanding more Paul Volponi books, which is a god thing, right!?  We hope to have one more book club date near the end of April, and it will have a Poetry theme to go hand in hand with National Poetry Month and National School Library Month. We are thinking a Poetry Picnic planned for the veranda/patio that overlooks the football field. We'll let everyone know soon.
