Nutmeg Book Group meets Thursday - "No Talking!"

The Nutmeg Book Discussion Group will discuss "No Talking" by Andrew Clements.  We will meet Thursday, February 25 at 5 p.m. Pizza dinner served.  In the book, Dave decides to try to stop talking at school after he reads about the Indian protester Mahatma Gandhi.  Then, it escalates into a fifth grade competition.  Who can talk the least? The girls or the boys?  All children in grades 4 to 6 are welcome. To register, please call us at 203.385.4165.
