Potato Picks Middle School Book Club - ”Hatchet” by Gary Paulsen

Book cover.

Thursday, October 10, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

All middle school students are invited to join us in the discussion of the Newberry Award winning book, “Hatchet” by Gary Paulsen. This novel is a fast paced adventure of Brian Robeson, who must learn to survive in the Canadian wilderness after his plane crashes. Participants will enjoy a lively discussion, unique prizes, yummy snacks, and some indoor target practice. All middle school students who plan to attend this discussion must pre-register by calling 706-743-8817 and everyone must read the novel prior to attending. If you are interested in donating prizes for this meeting, we are asking for anything that is associated with the outdoors and survival. For more information, please contact Tiffany.
