*We had our sixth "Breakfast with Books" book club on Thursday, March 27th. Our selection was The Liberation of Gabriel King by K.L. Going.
*I normally pick new titles, but this is one of my all-time favorite novels for children and I didn't want this year's readers to miss it.
*The readers read the book during the book of March. This is an optional book club, but I had enough copies of the novel for any student that wanted to read it.
*After reading the novel, each student wrote three questions for the author.
*We Skyped with K.L. Going before school. We spent about forty minutes with her and had a great time.

*She also spent some time with us talking about her writing process, sharing artifacts dealing with the book, and several other items. It was completely engaging.
