The first book we will be reading in Modern American Literature is The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. Published just this January, it is a story about a young girl living in South Carolina during the 1960s who is trying to escape an abusive father and find out the truth surrounding her mother’s death. It’s a beautifully written story that has garnered many great reviews from critics and students alike.
This year, we’re inviting you to read along with us! We’re going to try to form the first ever Secret Life of Bees Parents’ Online Book Club. All you need to participate is a desire to read the book, an Internet connection, and a bit of spare time to share your thoughts in writing. We’ll pose some questions for you to respond to, and hopefully we can start a dialogue about the book…”
Seventy kids total…any guesses on how many parents take us up on it???
