Our Cafe Library president, Carly, selected our first Cafe Library book of the 2011-2012 school year...Tuesdays with Morrie. Summary: "This novel tells the true story of retired sociology professor Morrie Schwatz and his relationship with his students. On his graduation, Mitch Albom, the narrator, tells his favorite professor, Morrie Schwartz, that he will keep in touch. However, Mitch doesn't contact his professor until one night when he sees Morrie being interviewed on T.V.. It turns out that Morrie has developed ALS, a terminal disease, and is in a wheelchair. Mitch begins to visit his professor and soon realizes that, though he has grown remarkably, he still has a lot to learn from Morrie."
It looks like the start of a great year for Cafe Library as Carly is full of great ideas for our group!
