Reading into new things


Check out book club on Mondays after school

Hailey Cockram, Writer


Book Club is one of the many activities here at OHS. It is a great opportunity to meet new people and experience many different types of literature. One book a month is read on average.
Book Club has been an activity at OHS for about five years now.

Lots of great books have been read in the past, the most recent one is Fish by L.S. Matthews, a book about becoming a refugee. Book Club encourages members to read interesting hidden in the shelves. At the meetings, new books are chosen, old books are discussed, and movies are watched. Adviser Mrs. Pat Wall said, “It is a great way to meet new people and be involved here at OHS.” It is a smaller group of about ten to twelve people, but they are always welcoming to new people. Sam Ihrke, a Book Club member for the past two years, says, “I love the in depth discussions we have about the books we read.” Book Club is currently reading, Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dressen, a book about a girl who is being bullied about her weight.

Meetings are held every Monday after school until 3:00 or 3:15 p.m. in the media center. For further information about Book Club, talk to Pat Wall, the coordinator, at the main office.
