Falmouth Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS), in collaboration with Falmouth Human Services and Falmouth Public Schools, has organized an afterschool Girls Circle book group. The book group is open to all 4th grade girls at East Falmouth Elementary and will be held after school on Mondays from 3:30 to 5 PM, beginning in early April. Registration is currently underway.
The book club selection is “Wonder,” by R.J. Palacio, a book for readers ages 8 to 12 years. The theme of the book is “almost universal,” according to the facilitator of Girls Circle, Janet Brady, and “covers all the topics that are important to kids as they move on to 5th grade.”
Copies of the book will be provided at no charge to participants. Participants of any reading ability are encouraged to sign up. For more information or to register, contact VIPS at 508-548-1621 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
