A literature club is more than reading books and talking about them. It’s about relationships! Our meetings are an opportunity to make new friends and enjoy old ones. It’s a time to connect and learn about each other and the classics we read. Getting together outside of the meetings is very important for building strong bonds. The Lassen family graciously offered their lake home for one of these outings. We were reading The Twenty-One Balloons so we decided to let the kids build their balloon projects while we were there. Afterwards we rode the jet ski, swam, ate lunch and relaxed.
