Hey, you 8th and 9th graders, BOOK CLUB is Wednesday, Nov. 14. If you haven't yet picked up your book (we have a couple of copies left!), this is your moment to do so--You Killed Wesley Payne, by Sean Beaudoin, is waiting for you at the library. (Please try to finish the book before we meet!) At the meeting, you will be receiving Human.4, by Mike Lancaster, to read for next month. Please let us know if you are NOT going to attend! You know the drill. See you Wednesday!

We want to know IF you are checking them out, and if so, WHAT you are checking out, and HOW you are going about finding the book(s) you want on our Magic Wall. Plus any other information you think is germane and want to share with us, of course!

Author event close by!

High School Book Club's choice for next month's book is Daughter of Smoke and Bone, by Laini Taylor. The author is on tour this month to promote the sequel, Days of Blood and Starlight, and happens to be appearing at two places in the Los Angeles area:

Thursday, November 15 at 4:00 p.m., at Santa Monica Public Library

Friday, November 16 at 7:00 p.m., at the Glendale Barnes and Noble

The tour sent me this coupon:

It looks like if you print the coupon, you can bring it with you and, if you buy the book, you also get a tote bag. The coupon is addressed to librarians, though, so I'm not sure it applies to everyone. However, note that they are raffling off an item of jewelry at each event too! Looks like fun! (Anarda says she hopes the jewelry they are giving away doesn't involve TEETH. Guess we'll have to read the book to figure that one out...)
