Discuss the books The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by  Jacqueline Kelly and/or the book Granny Torrelli Makes Soup by Sharon Creech.  We just couldn’t decide which one to read, so the group chose both for August (while we’re taking a break in July, there’s extra time to read two, perhaps?)! Decorate your memory book and enjoy a light snack. (Memory books and snacks provided.)
