Join the Ambrose Book Club
2021-22 School Year
We are excited to offer the following books for the Ambrose Book Club and Socratic Seminar. The books listed below are the books that our students read and study in literature class. Come and engage in conversation with the teachers that discuss these books with their students. To make most of the discussion please read the book prior to the session. For longer books, there will be two sessions, half of the book will be discussed at the first session and the second half at the next. All Ambrose parents, grandparents, and friends are welcome to be a part of the Ambrose Book Club!
