LUBLIN'S TRIBUTE TO CYPRUS AND GREECE
ELEFSINA'S TRIBUTE TO CYPRUS AND POLAND
Today we had a tribute to our twinners, searching for books on Poland and famous Polish or polish-born people (quite a few, actually!) and the books we have in our library on Cyprus, which we placed in a way to form the island itself. We listen to Chopin and Marios Tokas and the Reading Club took photos of our Polish Corner in the school with things our previous polish twinners sent us back in 2006.

The making of the film on the Greek School library is entirely Natalie's work. The title of this post is her idea,too.
Greek School Library Teen Reading Club
aka “The Aroma of page 7”, is a group of booklovers, 3 boys and 7 girls, and the occasional visitors, who love to read once a week after school hours, a title the group members compiled by choosing at random library books. After reading the Perfume by P. Süskind the group presented the reading pleasure as an aroma.We have adopted the habit of El Lector, the reader for the Puerto Rican cigar-makers, who read aloud while they were making the cigars. Our club makes crafts, while someone (usually the school librarian) reads aloud. Novels, short stories, poems mentioned in the books, which were selected on the basis of being made into films have been read so far. Of course, the reading is frequently interrupted, to make comments and trigger an interesting discussion in the group. Each member also presents the latest or their favorite reading.
We are very excited to twin the crafts we are making with our friends in Poland and Cyprus!
Here are some of the books read aloud during our Reading Club Sessions.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, which mentions
Dover Beach by Matthew Arnold as well as Edar Allan Poe (we chose the Raven)
Nadia by Lena Divani
