Danger Ahead 

In order to stimulate learning outside of the classroom, Bookstar's latest children's book club is based on the best-selling The Dangerous Book for Boys. Unless you've been living under a rock, you've no doubt heard about this charming work by English brothers Conn and Hal Iggulden, which covers basic boyhood skills — like tying a knot or building a go-kart — that may be falling by the wayside in the digital age.

The Dangerous Boys Club is for boys ages 7 and up and will be held in the children's area at Bookstar from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, February 2nd, at no charge. Parents are encouraged to browse the store or enjoy some coffee while a facilitator leads the book club activities. The club will continue through July with monthly meetings.

Each meeting will have its own theme relating to sections in the book. The theme for Saturday's kick-off is "It's a Secret" and will include coin tricks and code-deciphering. Future themes include "March into Battle," "A Pirate's Life for Me," "Camping & Adventure," "Nature & Exploring," and "Happy Birthday, America."

A book club for girls based on the newly written companion book, The Daring Book for Girls, is slated for the latter part of the year, but maybe truly daring girls could crash the Dangerous Boys Club.

The Wolfchase Barnes & Noble as well as the Collierville Barnes & Noble will also be holding Dangerous Boys Clubs on the same dates as Bookstar. Call for times, as they may vary.

"Dangerous boys club," Saturday, February 2nd, from 2 to 4 p.m. at Bookstar, 3402 Poplar (323-9332)
