Page by Page, the intermediate ELL book club, meets every Monday at 3 pm on Zoom. Each week, we discuss a few chapters from the book until we have read it all the way through.
Beginning October 3
The Midwife’s Apprentice by Karen Cushman

A girl known only as Brat has no family, no home, and no future until she meets Jane the Midwife and becomes her apprentice. As she helps the short-tempered Jane deliver babies, Brat—who renames herself Alyce—gains knowledge, confidence, and the courage to want something in life for the first time.
