At their 7th gathering on Saturday, the enthusiastic readers added only one new word - "charazva" meaning "to lock" - to their explanatory dictionary. But they expanded their knowledge about prominent figures like playwright William Shakespeare and sailor Christopher Columbus.
In their current stories, a giant cake now hovers over Trullo, while ingenious Matilda devises new pranks for her father. These amused friends continue bonding over bold books and characters. Their literacy and fellowship grows each Saturday through the pages they share.
