Tonight we’re hosting our first ever Reading Group here at the Crow’s Nest – and we’d love for you to take part. We’ll be discussing Wonder, by R.J. Palacio, the winner of this year’s Waterstones Children’s Book Prize in the 5 – 12 category, and as well as the physical event taking place here, there’ll be several online discussions taking place (we hope!) simultaneously.
We’ve partnered with The Guardian, who are hosting an online forum for discussion for everyone who’d like to talk about the book – leave your comments here (there are some great ones already) and check back tonight, where there’ll be contributions and updates from all of us here as well.
You can also join in on Twitter with the #NCGKids hashtag, where there’s already been a lively discussion about whether Wonder counts as a “crossover” book.
And you can leave comments here as well, if you have any thoughts about the book or the event!
We’re already planning our next reading group event, which will take place on July 11 – if you’d like to attend and haven’t already expressed interest, email [email protected]
