Book Club

  • Welcome to Manhasset's High School Book Club!

    What is the mission of the Book Club?

    The mission of the Book Club is to encourage students to engage in insightful discussions about social issues through literature. Students will expand their social horizons and gain a greater understanding of others, as well as improve their critical reading skills, by being exposed to a variety of authors and genres.  The Book Club is open to all students in grades 9-12 regardless of reading ability or affinity. 

    Typically we read either a chapter of a book, a short story, or a collection of poems, all under 20 pages; however, we are open to all types of literature including Manga/graphic novels and critical essays. All of the literature will be selected based upon member recommendations unless otherwise stated!

     

    When are our meetings?

    Our first meeting for the 2021-2022 school year is Tuesday, September 21st at 3:15pm.

    Our usual meetings will be held every Tuesday, although dates vary, in the high school library at 3:15. If you are interested in joining, please email either Mrs. Greenberg or any officer and they will add you to the Canvas page and the GroupMe.
