Our Middle School Family Book Club meeting took place on Wednesday evening, and attracted over 80 participants – all of whom had read the chosen book, The Secret Starling, in preparation.
Fortified by delicious cakes, the boys and other family members took part in round table activities and discussions on different elements of the book. The book’s author, Judith Eagle, kindly joined us for the meeting, so was able to sign everyone’s books, take part in the discussions and answer the myriad of questions from the tables. She had also brought some advance proof copies of her next book – The Pear Affair – which she gave away to boys who were able to answer some quiz questions on classic children’s literature. It was a terrific evening, so many thanks to all those families who braved a very cold January night to join us.
