Hunterdon Central High School, in Flemington, New Jersey, calls it One School, One Book. Not only does HCHS have a great book club, called Bookworms, which meets every two weeks to discuss a great book outside the school curriculum, but they were a part of the YALSA Young Adult Galley, the group that chooses the Teen Read Week Top 10. Hats off to you, Bookworms!
From the HCHS webpage:
Why is everyone carrying around the same book? Why is my teacher reading the same book as the custodian, my bus driver, the cafeteria staff, the secretary, and the librarian?
It's One School, One Book! Before the second week of October, the entire school (staff and students) is invited to share one reading experience. There will be activities of all kinds...something for everyone! So don't be left out! Copies are available for $7.99 at Borders, or you can check a copy out from the IMC starting Monday, June 15th. Throughout the summer, books can be checked-out or returned Monday - Thursday. Don't forget your ID! Go on...read, share, and experience - One School, One Book!
HCHS chose Three Little Words: A Memoir by Ashley Rhodes-Courter for it's One School, One Book initiative. The Bookworms are currently reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
