WILD GIRLS BOOK CLUB at Books Inc. Laurel Village

 Come get to know other 9-12 year old girls and their moms at this monthly book club at Books Inc. Laurel Village.

Named after our first selection, The Wild Girls by Pat Murphy,  this club meets once each month on Sunday afternoon at 1PM.

This month we're reading Force of Nature by Ann Berg!

A beautiful and hopeful story of how a young impassioned naturalist grows up to change the world. For everyone who cares about our fragile planet.

“Gracefully written…pleasing to the eye and ear.” —Kirkus Reviews

Rachel was a girl who loved

science and the sea,

books and writing

and all the creatures of the world.

Rachel was quiet,

a listener by nature.

But when she saw problems,

she could not remain silent.

Some people thought girls

shouldn’t be scientists.

They thought girls

shouldn’t use their voices

to question or challenge,

even to protect

all the creatures of the world.

Luckily Rachel didn’t listen

to them.
