April Adult Learner Book Club

 
The April book club selection is: The Great Gilly Hopkins by Katherine Paterson.
 
“It's Gilly Hopkins vs. the world! And so far, Gilly seems to be winning. But what she doesn't realize is that every time she wings, she really loses, until she discovers a love as formidable as any enemy she's ever known.” ~Goodreads.com
 
We will meet at the usual time, 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the Literacy, Outreach and Volunteer Office, 2901 S. Harvard Ave., on Monday, April 28th.

ProLiteracy Statistical Report from 2012-2013

A new survey of ProLiteracy adult literacy and basic education member organizations finds that federal funding for these programs continues to shrink—falling 1 percentage point over last year and falling 10 percentage points since 2006.

Additionally, ProLiteracy programs show a general trend of receiving less public funding overall. In 2011-12, 38 percent of programs received federal and/or state funding; that figure has fallen to 31 percent in 2012-13.

March Adult Learner Book Club Selection

The March book club selection is Call Me Francis Tucket. This second book in a popular series by Gary Paulsen (a favorite author of Literacy book club!) is another action-packed Western  with galloping horses and one friendly old mule. There are also shooting rifles, heroes, scoundrels, some lost children,  (maybe a few wolves here and there) and prairie ethics.  Gary Paulsen is a Newberry Honor award winning master storyteller whose stories often appeal to reluctant readers.
