Pizza & Pages is the new incarnation of a previous book club, Snack -n- Yak, geared toward middle school students.
The monthly book club is for students in grades six through eight from the community, including home-schooled students and Bowling Green Middle School students.
The first meeting is Sept. 24 at 2:30 p.m. in the middle school library.
The biggest difference between Snack -n- Yak and Pizza & Pages is student choice, according to Patti Rish, library media specialist at the middle school.
"Previously our partner, Wood County District Public Library, and I selected a single book each month to discuss in depth. Now we are offering choices within a genre, topic, or theme," Rish said in an email. "September's book will be realistic fiction. We try to select books with a very recent copyright and favorable reviews."
