The first book that members of the Middle School Book Club are reading is:
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
After the grisly murder of his entire family, a toddler wanders into a graveyard where the ghosts and other supernatural residents agree to raise him as one of their own.
This book won the 2008 Newbery Medal!
If you would like to join the Club, please email Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org. We meet on the last Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m and we serve pizza.
The Book Club is for rising 7th and 8th graders.
Come to the teen room this Thursday at 7 p.m. for this month's TAB meeting. On the agenda:
On Wednesday, February 25 at 7 p.m., Rachel Cohn will be visiting Darien Library. Rachel is the author of You Know Where to Find Me, Pop Princess, Shrimp, and co-author of Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist.
You Know Where to Find Me is an Oprah’s Book Club pick for teens and Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist, which she co-authored with David Levithan, was made into a feature film starring Michael Cera and Kat Dennings.
A book signing will follow the presentation, which will be held in the Community Room.
The first 30 teens to arrive will get a free copy of You Know Where to Find Me, which comes out in paperback on February 24.
The first meeting of Darien Library's TAB (Teen Advisory Board) is Thursday, February 5 at 7 pm in the teen room. If you would like to join TAB, email me! We already have lots of people signed up, and it's going to be a lot of fun. One of the major privileges of TAB is deciding what will be written on the teen room walls! You will also be planning events and helping me decide what books to buy.
What does the TAB do?
When and where does the TAB met?
