{September 28, 2009}   September Twilight Book Club Meeting

{September 23, 2009}   Twilight Book Club Summer Meetings

[rockyou id=153260388&w=426&h=320]

We had a smaller group this time due to end of school projects and graduations. We celebrated the near-end of school with pizza and coca-cola. We also took some online quizzes to test our knowledge from our reading of City of Bones. City of Ashes is next…

The book club was lucky enough to hang out with the author, Meredith Ann Pierce!  Ms. Pierce answered questions about her book and what it’s like to be a writer.  She also gave each member a copy of her book and autographed them.
