New Teen Book Club Starts this Saturday

You’re invited to our very first graphic novel and comic book club for grades 7+ this Saturday. We’ll be snacking on pizza and talking about things we loved and didn’t love so much about Nimona by Noelle Stevenson. You’ll also have the chance to vote on which book we read & discuss next.

Here’s a brief summary of this super cool book (which is appropriate for grades 7-12):

Nimona is an impulsive young shapeshifter with a knack for villainy. Lord Ballister Blackheart is a villain with a vendetta. As sidekick and supervillain, Nimona and Lord Blackheart are about to wreak some serious havoc. Their mission: prove to the kingdom that Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin and his buddies at the Institution of Law Enforcement and Heroics aren’t the heroes everyone thinks they are. But as small acts of mischief escalate into a vicious battle, Lord Blackheart realizes that Nimona’s powers are as murky and mysterious as her past. And her unpredictable wild side might be more dangerous than he is willing to admit.

More information:

Meet us: in the Young Adult Room at the Main Library (300 Main Street)

Time: 2:00-3:00pm (come early if you want a slice of pizza!)

Dates: Saturday, March 26 (future hangouts will be determined on Saturday)

Copies of NIMONA are still available at the Info Desk at the Main Library
