New Topic Ideas

Here’s what we have so far for potential topic ideas. If you come up with any new ideas please post them as a comment to this post. I would like to plan through the end of the year so you will be able to vote for more topics than you usually can. If you really like any of these ideas, please come next month ready to rally for it. You might even want to come with some examples of books that you could use for that topic to get other book club members excited about your topic idea.

  • Graphic novels (novels that are written kind of like comic books)
  • New award winners
  • Children’s poetry (we could have our own poetry reading)
  • Illustrator study of three illustrators
  • Caldecott award winners
  • Mysteries
  • Historical Fiction
  • Books from different decades
  • Multicultural books
  • Coretta Scott King award for African American literature
  • Pura Belpre award for Latino literature
  • Robert McCloskey author/illustrator study
  • Mormon author study
  • Science fiction
  • Fantasy
  • Roald Dahl author study
  • Westerns
  • Nonfiction
  • Short stories
  • Favorites (everyone brings one of their favorite books in one month and we select some to read the next month)
  • Biographies

I have read a lot of really cool prequels to Peter Pan lately and I think that would make a really interesting topic. We could include books like Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, Capt. Hook: The Adventures of a Notorious Youth by J.V. Hart, and Wendy by Karen Wallace.

I'd recommend as a book club topic: "Pirates and Monkeys."
