New Moon Book Club Chat on Monday, April 23rd -- and you can get a free book!

This Monday, New Moon book club members will be meeting for an online chat with author Esme Raji Codell about her book, Sahara Special. Here's some information about the book:

"There are two files on Sahara Jones. The one the school counselor keeps is evidence that she's a fifth-grader who needs special education. The other is the book Sahara is secretly writing, her Heart-Wrenching Life Story and Amazing Adventures. The latest chapter in her book unfolds when her mother insists that she be taken out of special ed. So Sahara is facing fifth grade in the regular classroom, again. But why even try to do the work, Sahara wonders, if everything just winds up in the counselor's file? Enter Miss Pointy, the new fifth-grade teacher. With her eggplant-colored lipstick, and strange subjects such as “Puzzling” and “Time Travel,” she's like no other teacher Sahara has ever known. Through Miss Pointy's unusual teaching, storytelling, and quiet support, Sahara finds the courage to overcome her fears and prove which file shows her true self."

Esme is so excited to chat with book club members on April, 23rd at 7:30 p.m central time, that she's giving away copies of Viva la Paris, the sequel to Sahara Special, FREE! Be one of the first 25 book club members to email with your name and address and we'll send it out to you FREE of charge!
