CLARKSDALE – It was another successful turnout for Coahoma Community College’s iRead Book Club during their monthly meeting Wednesday.

The club is maintaining it’s boost in membership this semester as dozens of students as well as CCC faculty and staff members came out to its second meeting, hosted in the Magnolia Room of the Zee A. Barron Student Union, to dissect Sharon M. Draper’s, “Tears of a Tiger”.

Those attending engaged in stimulating conversation about the award-winning novel while enjoying a light lunch. Leading the conversation was CCC English Department Chair Vera Griffin.

“He was winner and all of a sudden this changed. …That’s the nature of life,” said Griffin as she discussed the book’s main character, Andy, whose life changed in one horrifying night.

She then joined students as they discussed the metaphorical implication and other key points of the novel. iRead, an acronym for Inspiring Reader Exploration Across the Delta, began in 2010 as CCC’s required Quality Enhancement Plan. A component of that plan was the introduction of the book club, which is open to both CCC students and faculty members and explores four novels each semester.

The club’s next meeting will feature the classic Harper Lee novel, “To Kill a Mockingbird”.
