In April of 2008, the Moo Moo Book Club chose to read The Cave, the Cabin, and the Tattoo Man by Tim Callahan. The setting of this book is Morgan County Kentucky, and the students enjoyed reading something close to home. They gained a new respect for the book however when, through Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Lexington, KY, they were able to hear the author speak. Mr. Callahan was nice enough to speak exclusively to the book club and to answer their questions both about the book and about creative writing.
Before meeting at Joseph-Beth, students toured the Carnegie Literacy Center, also in Lexington. They had some reading time and chose books from their library to keep. It was a neat experience.
