Contest Entries, Book Cafe!

We are so pleased to tell you that we received 37 entries for our "Once Upon A Time" Re-told Fairy Tale Writing Contest! We have downloaded and printed out, or copied and distributed, all stories, and now Burbank Library staff will be reading your stories and choosing the writers whose stories we felt stood out from the rest!

Remember that the results will be announced this Thursday, November 19, at our BOOK CAFE with CORNELIA FUNKE, and that Cornelia herself will hand out the prizes!

What could be better than hanging with your friends, talking about books and eating coffee house treats, meeting Cornelia Funke, and then maybe getting an award from this stellar author of so many best beloved books for children and teens?

Cornelia is coming to talk with us about her new book in the Mirrorworld series. The Golden Yarn is book #3, after Reckless and Fearless. We are very excited to be the venue at which she is debuting this book! Many of us have read the first two books and have been eagerly awaiting book #3, and now it's coming to Burbank Public Library first of anywhere!

We hope you will do your best to attend this session of Book Cafe with Cornelia. Please be aware that this program is for teens in grades 6-12 only, per Cornelia's request. It's at 7:00 p.m. at the Buena Vista Branch, in the auditorium. See you there?
