BOOK CLUB | ESL
Join us for this book club for non-English speakers. We are reading A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly, an American historical novel known as Realistic Fiction because of the untrue life story of Mattie Gokey, the real death of Grace Brown, and the events that could take place in the 1900s. Set in northern Herkimer County, New York in 1906, it is based on the murder of Grace Brown case.
Donnelly won the 2003 Carnegie Medal for A Northern Light and the 2003 Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Young Adult Literature. The American Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) named it one of the year's Top Ten Best Books for Young Adults and it was a runner up for best book in that category, the Michael L. Printz Award.
New members are welcome to join anytime as we review vocabulary, phonetics and reading comprehension.
