A few days ago, I listed the titles for the High School Book Club. This week, I'd like to share what we have in store for the Junior High Teen Book Club. I found out that our group from last year, made it into the yearbook. This year should be even more fun, so watch for pictures! Right now this is what we have to look forward to:
Jackson County History: Slavery, Border Wars, and Civil War
There is no way of discussing the Border Wars in a blog without gross oversimplification, so I am going to get out of the way and leave it to Ann Everett. On September 9th at 7 p.m., Ann Everett will be doing a multi-media presentation on Jackson County from 1850-1865 at the South Independence Branch.
Here are a couple of quotes along with a short list of titles on the subject:
A trip to the library is a first class ticket to books that bring us as close as we can get to actually visiting in different parts of the world. Here is a list of seven books that should whet your appetite for adventure.
Looking out my front door, across the grassy field in the shade of the trees, I saw a tall, shimmering, orange flower that stood above all the tall grasses. Curious, I went over to see it. I knew it was a lily, but had no idea what kind. At this time, I knew nothing about wildflowers beyond dandelions and Queen Ann’s Lace. I had never seen this beautiful flower. On another occasion, I found a pretty purple flower and wondered what it might be.
