Tween Book Club: Class Action

Tween Book Club: Class Action

Are you a 4th-6th grader who loves to read? Join us for a book club with like-minded readers, where we'll discuss books and do cool activities. This month, we're discussing Class Action, a realistic novel about a topic close to every kid's heart by Steven B. Frank.

NO. MORE. HOMEWORK. That’s what sixth-grader Sam Warren tells his teacher while standing on top of his desk. He's fed up with doing endless tasks from the time he gets home to the time he goes to sleep. Suspended for his protest, Sam decides to fight back. He recruits his elderly neighbor/retired attorney Mr. Kalman to help him file a class action lawsuit on behalf of all students in Los Angeles. Their argument? Homework is unconstitutional. Will Sam's quest end in an epic fail, or will he be the hero who saves childhood for all time?

Register online to attend. Registration opens after December's book club meeting. First priority will be given to kids from the waitlist for December's meeting if spaces open. Speak with a librarian to pick up a free copy of Class Action to keep (supplies are limited).
