The Middle School Book Beat

by Liz Price Patel
This year's Book Beat highlighted our middle schoolers' many talents. Led by our fearless MC, Natalie G., the program combined the literary and musical arts of solo and group performers: poetry recitation and reading, book passages and reviews, original songs, and stand-out performances by all four of our exceptional rock bands. There was, of course, a little comedy, book shopping, and copious pizza- and dessert-eating in the mix, too. It was a great night for middle school families!
