Students Sample Different Genres at “Book Tasting”

The event included tables with “menus” where students learned about many different genres, including realistic fiction, poetry, historical fiction, informational, fantasy, mystery and biography. Students learned from other students, and had fun moving from table to table, sampling the wide variety of books.
