February Teen Book Club: Spinning Silver 2021

February Teen Book Club: Spinning Silver

With the Nebula Award–winning Uprooted, Naomi Novik opened a brilliant new chapter in an already acclaimed career, delving into the magic of fairy tales to craft a love story that was both timeless and utterly of the now. Spinning Silver draws readers deeper into this glittering realm of fantasy, where the boundary between wonder and terror is thinner than a breath, and safety can be stolen as quickly as a kiss.

      • * A suggested reading schedule

For participation throughout the book club: A Google Drive account is required to submit some assignments. Discussion boards will take place over Discord.

Participants can participate as much as works for their schedules and interest level. There will be opportunities for ongoing discussions, vocabulary activities, and additional resources to explore. Between reading the book and participating in supplemental activities, participants can expect to spend between 1 and 3 hours a week on class activities. Those who choose to do the final project (with or without the feedback add-on) can expect to spend 4-5 additional hours on that project.

The book club discussion boards and live discussion are extemporaneous and therefore somewhat unpredictable. Facilitators will do their best to ensure positive, supportive interactions.

Families are encouraged to check reviews and content notes for each individual book in the book club to ensure it is a good fit for them.
