Lunchtime Book Club
The purpose of the Lunchtime Book Club is to promote reading by exposing students to a variety of literary genres and providing the opportunity for participation in informal literature circles within an open, non-judgmental setting.
The book club meets in the media center conference room during each lunch period on the third Tuesday of each month. Any student or faculty member of G.W. Carver High School may attend meetings and can join at any time throughout the year.
Book club members are expected to read at least one book selection per month. Two-three titles will be recommended each month by book club members and the media specialist. Book discussions will be led by the Director of Teen Services from the Columbus Public Library.
Poetry Writers Workshop
The Poetry Writers Workshop is opened to any student at G. W. Carver High School that enjoys creative writing in all forms- poets, singers, rappers, and comedians. The workshops are held after school in the media center on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month.
Workshops are led by the founder of the Fountain City Teen Poetry Slam, Jonathan Perkins who works with students on writing and open mic skills. Students that attend the school workshops are encouraged to attend the Fountain City Slam Open Mics and compete for the chance to attend the International Youth Poetry Festival- Brave New Voices as a member of the local team.
