Join the Teen Services Librarians for a brand new book discussion especially for teens in grades 9-12! Every two months, we'll discuss a new title and work together to write a letter to the author. This month, we will be reading:
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a perfectly normal boy. Well, he would be perfectly normal if he didn't live in a graveyard, being raised by ghosts, with a guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor the world of the dead.
Dangers and adventures await Bod in the graveyard: the strange and terrible menace of the Sleer; a gravestone entrance to a desert leading to the city of ghouls; and friendship with a witch. But it is in the land of the living that real danger lurks, for it is there that the man Jack lives, and he has already killed Bod's family.
Attendees who read the book and participate in writing a letter to the author at the program will receive 3 hours of community service.
