National Year of Reading- September- Grow

opening flower It’s almost September- time to chat about the National Year of Reading theme for the month, Grow. 

The love2read blog talks about the many options within this theme! Personal growth, self -help,  health & well being, pregnancy, parenting, growth industries, career changes, weight loss (if you’ve been baking cakes and ‘growing’) the environment, sustainablilty and gardening.

Here at Nowra Library our 3rd Wednesday Book Club is reading texts from the current HSC syllabus. We figure kids grow, and we’d like to see what they’re studying for the HSC later this year. Texts under study include English classics like Wuthering Heights, Great Expectations, Pride & Prejudice and Jane Eyre and modern classics like  Catch-22, Dune and Brave New World. Poets Emily Dickinson, Silvia Plath and John Keats, as well the Shakespeare, are all present, as are Australian authors Peter Carey and Tim Winton.

We’re looking forward to seeing how our book club members like walking in the shoes of our HSC students this month : )

Happy reading (and growing!) everyone!
