Sorry about the cancelling of our last meeting, I have a meeting and tons to do before track out. We will meet again on February 5, 2015. So that is a very long time from now, so I wanted to get you started on our next read.
So far in our Inklings reading group we have attacked classic fantasy, with Goblins, and Steam Punk with The League of Seven. Now we are going to look at a classic science fiction novel. Not classic in the way you might think (robots, lasers and spaceships) but truly sci-fi.
The story we will be reading over break and doing some fun reading challenges early in 2015 is called The True Meaning of Smekday by Adam Rex. Some of you may have heard of this great book and others might know it by the film version that is scheduled for March. The plan is to read the novel, do some challenges and then plan a field trip to see the film when it is released in March.
So find a copy, and get reading. The story is funny and makes you think and I promise you will not be bored. If you love the book, like I did, then you will be excited to know that Adam Rex has written a sequel called Smek for President! which will be released on February 10, 2015.
