Viking Book League Mickala Davison

Lauren Pruiti

Viking Book League is for grades 6th – 8th and we focus on a book a month that peaks the interest of those participating. These books will transition from fiction to nonfiction. Any student can join as long as they have a permission slip, agree to bring snacks for one meeting, and obtain their own copy of the book. Our goal after each book is to make contact with the author and interview him/her about the book. Students will submit questions and conduct the interview when possible.
