For March's Book Club, we will be reading Jedi Academy by Jeffrey Brown.

"My whole life I planned on going to pilot school like the rest of my friends--then I got rejected! Along came a little green guy named Yoda who invited me to Jedi Academy. Now I'm at a school with aliens, robots, and lightsaber-wielding bullies who can lift things with their minds! How am I supposed to compete with that? As if starting middle school wasn't hard enough..." 

The story of Roan Novachez, Jedi Academy student, is told through comics, journal entries, letters, doodles, and newspaper clippings. This incredible, original story from author/illustrator Jeffrey Brown captures all of the humor, awkwardness, fun, and frustrations of middle school ... in a galaxy far, far away."

We will be meeting on Wednesday, March 3 at 3:30 p.m.  Please be sure to pick up your copy of the book at the library and register  (so Miss Lisa can send you the Zoom password).
