One Book: One World

 Literacy for All

As Wonderland BookSavers, we naturally love to read.  We began as a book club, and we continue as a book club. In fact, our entire mission has always been Inspired by Literature!  We choose literature, non-fiction, poetry, mythology, any genre.  Then we each read our book, join for discussions, and create a Project inspired by our reading. Would you like to join us?  Let’s see what we are reading this month…
