Middle Grade Bookclub

RoscoeBooks wants you to get lost in a book! 

We invite your 8-12 year old readers* to meet with us once a month to discuss a different book! We'll tackle fantasy, mysteries, social dramas, and just about everything in between. Here are a few of the book we've read in the past:

Stella by Starlight by Sharon M. Draper

Rump by Liesl Shurtliff

The Brixton Brothers: The Case of the Case of Mistaken Identity by Mac Barnett

One White Dolphin by Gill Lewis

The Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillo

A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula LeGuin

A Tale Dark and Grimm by Adam Gidwitz and more!

No reservations necessary. Parents are welcome, but not required to attend! Just show up ready to chat about the book we're reading that month! We'll provide thematic snacks and some fun activities!

This month, we're going on an adventure with Sophie in Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. Next Meeting: Friday, May 26th at 4:30 pm

*If you're concerned about the reading level of the books we're choosing, please see Kelsey or Erika at the store. We can help give you some insight about whether your reader will need a little parent-aided help or if it's something they can tackle on their own.

For any questions, please email us at roscoebooks@gmail.com.

Sophie has the great misfortune of being the eldest of three daughters, destined to fail miserably should she ever leave home to seek her fate. But when she unwittingly attracts the ire of the Witch of the Waste, Sophie finds herself under a horrid spell that transforms her into an old lady. Her only chance at breaking it lies in the ever-moving castle in the hills: the Wizard Howl's castle. To untangle the enchantment, Sophie must handle the heartless Howl, strike a bargain with a fire demon, and meet the Witch of the Waste head-on. Along the way, she discovers that there's far more to Howl--and herself--than first meets the eye.
