For Boys Eyes Only Book Club (FBEO)
FBEO is focusing on working with younger elementary boys (1st to 3rd) and has about reached participant capacity!
The book selection for January 12th’s meeting will be The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger: Dwight is a sixth grader at McQuarrie Middle School who is considered quite weird. One day, Dwight folds an origami finger puppet of Yoda, a popular Star Wars figure. Through an imitation voice, Dwight offers advice to his classmates through Yoda. Some students at McQuarrie soon become convinced that Origami Yoda has a special connection to the Force, while others remain skeptical. A fellow sixth-grader named Tommy decides to write a case file to prove if Origami Yoda is real. He convinces a number of students to write about their experiences with Origami Yoda, while his friend Kellen illustrates the file. However, Harvey, who has always been cruel to Dwight and is skeptical about Origami Yoda’s wisdom, attempts to disprove Origami Yoda’s connection to the Force.
