Fort Greene Young Readers Book Group discusses Holes
Led by Greenlight receiving manager Grace, our young readers book group in Fort Greene is geared toward kids ages 9 to 12, and reads great contemporary and classic chapter books. Parents are welcome (but not required) to attend, and pizza is served. For January, the group reads and discusses Louis Sachar’s Newbery Medal and National Book Award winning, #1 New York Times bestseller Holes. After being sent unjustly to a boys' detention center, Stanley Yelnats is forced by the warden to dig holes everyday. While the warden claims it's to build character, it doesn't take Stanley long to realize there's more than character improvement going on at Camp Green Lake. Stanley decides he needs to dig up the truth about what the warden is looking for. A beloved modern classic, Holes is an inventive and darkly humorous tale of crime and punishment – and redemption.
