Join us for a great discussion and great pizza! In August we will be discussing "The Girl Who Drank the Moon" by Kelly Barnhill. 

Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the forest, Xan, is kind and gentle. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster named Glerk and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, Fyrian. Xan rescues the abandoned children and deliver them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey. One year, Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides she must raise this enmagicked girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own. To keep young Luna safe from her own unwieldy power, Xan locks her magic deep inside her. When Luna approaches her thirteenth birthday, her magic begins to emerge on schedule--but Xan is far away. Meanwhile, a young man from the Protectorate is determined to free his people by killing the witch. Soon, it is up to Luna to protect those who have protected her--even if it means the end of the loving, safe world she’s always known.

Friday, September 17, 2021 from 4:15 pm to 5:15 pm

Join us for a great discussion and great pizza! In September we will be discussing "Life As We Knew It" by Susan Beth Pfeffer. 

Miranda’s disbelief turns to fear in a split second when a meteor knocks the moon closer to the earth. How should her family prepare for the future when worldwide tsunamis wipe out the coasts, earthquakes rock the continents, and volcanic ash blocks out the sun? As summer turns to Arctic winter, Miranda, her two brothers, and their mother retreat to the unexpected safe haven of their sunroom, where they subsist on stockpiled food and limited water in the warmth of a wood-burning stove. Told in journal entries, this is the heart-pounding story of Miranda’s struggle to hold on to the most important resource of all--hope--in an increasingly desperate and unfamiliar world.

Monday, October 4, 2021 from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm

A book club for homeschoolers ages 12 to 16! This is a chance to socialize with other readers and practice respecting opinions while discussing a variety of topics. We will be discussing "The Ruins of Gorlan" by John Flanagan (The Ranger's Apprentice, Book 1).

They have always scared him in the past — the Rangers, with their dark cloaks and shadowy ways. And now 15-year-old Will, always small for his age, has been chosen as a Ranger's apprentice. What he doesn't yet realize is that the Rangers are the protectors of the kingdom. Highly trained in the skills of battle and surveillance, they fight the battles before the battles reach the people. And there is a large battle brewing. The exiled Morgarath is gathering his forces for an attack on the kingdom.
