Chapter & Verse Book Club: The Button War and Gandhi
Chpater and Verse will meet to discuss The Button War by Avi and Gandhi: A March to the Sea by Alice B. McGinty.
Renowned, award-winning author Avi pens a stark, unflinching tale of ordinary boys living in wartime as tensions — and desperations — mount among them.
Mohandas Gandhi's 24-day March to the Sea, from March 12 to April 5, 1930, was a pivotal moment in India's quest to become an independent country no longer ruled by Great Britain. With over 70 marchers, Gandhi walked from his hometown near Ahmedabab to the sea coast by the village of Dandi.
