October Meeting Wrap-Up

The Book Buddies Book Club met Monday afternoon to discuss our October book, The Ghost of Crutchfield Hall by Mary Downing Hahn. We had a terrific discussion and everyone who came really enjoyed the book.

Following our discussion we talked about how to write a mystery/ghost story and what elements are necessary to create a spooky atmosphere and creepy characters. There are a couple of great websites to go to if you are interested in writing your own mysteries:

Mysterynet's Kids Mysteries

Scholastic's Mystery Writing with Joan Lowery Nixon
