This week, the KAIS Book Club finished reading Elizabeth Acevedo’s The Poet X. Participants were all enamored by this work of novelized slam poetry. Our next book will be Hank Green’s An Absolutely Remarkable Thing, which is book one (of two) in the Carl Saga. Here’s a brief description:
“Roaming through New York City at three a.m., twenty-three-year-old April May stumbles across a giant sculpture. Delighted by its appearance and craftsmanship—like a ten-foot-tall Transformer wearing a suit of samurai armor—April and her best friend, Andy, make a video with it, which Andy uploads to YouTube. The next day, April wakes up to a viral video and a new life. News quickly spreads that there are Carls in dozens of cities around the world—from Beijing to Buenos Aires—and April, as their first documentarian, finds herself at the center of an intense international media spotlight.”
Students—if you are interested in signing up, please put your name on the list by the door by Friday, March 26th. Read on, Llamas!
