Fall in Love with Nesaquake’s Book Club

In an effort to inspire passion for reading, Nesaquake Middle School has launched the Nesaquake Love Book Club this year. Spearheaded by English teacher Marissa LoSardo, the club and its members work to engage new readers who fall in love with books.

The club features a reader of the week, which could be a teacher or administrator, who records a video clip of themselves reading the first chapter of a book. The “reader of the week” chooses and shares a book in the hopes that others are inspired to read it. 

“We also update a bulletin board in the cafeteria each month sharing titles that focus of certain genres,” LoSardo said. “And, we’re very excited that Nesaquake may soon have a book vending machine.”

Club members also will canvas the school and interview classmates and teachers about different topics of the week. The club broadcasts their weekly focus questions. 

The club meets twice a month on Monday mornings. Check out all their happenings on Instagram at @nesaquake_book_love. On their page, the club posts reading and book loving memes and reposts novels from authors or publishing companies to share titles of interesting books.
