We’re trying something a little different tonight. The OTs have been a little slow, but comments on other posts are really picking up, so tonight I’m smushing book club into an OT to see if we can perk it up a little. As you know, we’re discussing Ellen Raskin’s The Westing Game, my favorite book ever.
I had a great plan, if I could find enough willing guinea pigs, to do a Westing-esque mystery involving groups of members, a Dorothy Parker poem and a blog-wide scavenger hunt. Since we didn’t get quite enough members to make it work, that’s scrapped for now. I came up with something a little different to stretch our higher-order thinking skills and have fun with the cast of The Westing Game.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to pick any non-Samuel Westing character from the book and write a paragraph or two about what you think happened to them after the book was over, from a first-person perspective. Toss it in the comments below.
For our non-book club readers/OTers, you can use this just like a normal open thread. To get you all inspired, here’s a song I think fits really well with The Westing Game.
