October Tween Book Club: A Wrinkle in Time
A Wrinkle in Time, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O’Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg’s father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem.

All participants will need to secure their own copy of the book. Used, borrowed, or electronic versions are all acceptable.
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 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.
