bookcoverMorning Glories by Nick Spencer is as crazy as it is intense.

A little unbelievable at times but full of action and drama, this story features a group of six teens all with the same birthday that get accepted into an exclusive prep school. It's called the Morning Glory Academy. At this school the teachers do whatever it takes to raise a new breed of super humans and what they do is weird, freaky, and often horrifying.

Author, Natalie Lorenzi

Georgetown Library got a taste of Japanese Culture on May 22. Natalie Lorenzi, author of Flying The Dragon, visited to answer questions about her book, and make origami kites with participants. Lorenzi talked about how her experiences living and teaching in Italy and Japan influenced her book.

Participants also enjoyed “tamago,” a traditional egg dish used in Japanese bento boxes or lunch boxes, which were mentioned in the book. They tried to eat these with chopsticks. Some labored a bit longer than others with the chopsticks, becoming so fascinated, they almost missed the craft!
