Children's Book Club Meeting

"Crazy Lady" by Jane Leslie Conly

Come Thursday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. on September 9, 2010 for the ages 8 - 12 book club meeting.  We will be discussing Crazy Lady by Jane Leslie Conly.  This is realistic fiction at its best.  Real situations and real people without any sugar-coating.  Ms. Conly has written a book that has been simultaneously banned by Texas schools and recommended for reading especially by young men in other parts of the country.  The setting is the Tenley Heights neighborhood of Baltimore, Maryland, but it could be set in any city or town across America.  It is a book about friendship and loss, and growing up.  It was published in 1993 and named a Newbery Honor book in 1994.  The content is still relevant today.
