Shout Mouse Press Book Group
For UUCB older elementary, middle school, high school and adults
Washington DC youth authors write stories we need to hear. Starting in January 2022, Michele Grove will host a series of online and in-person book groups to discuss some of these books. Each month will focus on different books. You can order your own books or come to the church library and read them. If you are interested, sign up here. Once we know who is interested, we will create small groups. The hope is that each group will meet once a month for 4 months (older elementary groups will meet for 2 months). If you wish to look at the books or order books of your own, go to: https://www.shoutmousepress.org/
