Welcome to Mrs. Boman's Book Banter

I changed the wiki name because I'm not currently teaching right now at all, but I wanted the work I've done on this space to continue to go forward. This page was started as a community reading group WikiSpace for charter schools in the United States. The core mission of the wiki has not changed. If you love to read great books, join us for a monthly discussion of a great title. (Suggestions for discussion are also welcome) My hope is that this will become a useful resource for book information for students and others!

Happy reading!
