Kids' Book Club: 'The City of Ember'

Monday, Sept. 9, 2013, 6 p.m.

City of Ember Book CoverImagine living in a city with no way out, gradually crumbling around you, plagued by darkness. In a world where at any moment, the lights could go out forever, would you trust those who are older and wiser to save you or would you take matters into your own hands?

Twelve-year-olds Lina and Doon from The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau, must make just this difficult choice. Join them in unraveling a most mysterious solution, and join us for a special "book club in the dark."

Pick up your copy of The City of Ember at the Check-Out desk here at the Juanita E. Thornton /Shepherd Park Neighborhood Library (choice of original novel or graphic novel). Then, read the book at home, at school, in the library, or anywhere!

Meeting will include pizza, discussion and games. And don't forget to bring a flashlight for this one!
