book groups for guys!

We have two book groups for young guys, our Middle School Guys group and and the Adventure Boys group for chapter book readers.

This month, the Middle School Guys group meets on Friday, July 25th at 4:30 pm. We're reading The Black Book of Secrets, by F.E. Higgins. I picked this book because of it's opening scene: Ludlow Fitch about to get his teeth pulled by a nasty tooth merchant who is aided by Ludlow's own parents! Ludlow escapes to a remote village where he hides out and starts a new life…but what he doesn’t know is that his dark past is coming, and his terrible secrets will affect everyone around him. I picked this book because the opening scene grabbed me in a way that few openings have, and I can’t wait to read the rest!

The Adventure Boys group is reading a title provided by our wonderful rep from Harper Collins. The King of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner is the book and it is free to all Boys in our group! Filled with political intrigue, medieval espionage, and assassination plots, this book is an engaging look at what happens in the days and years after a young pauper rises to become king. Come by and pick up your copy!

Also, as a heads up to all of our Boys looking to get in their summer reading requirements-- Holes by Louis Sachar will be our August book, selection courtesy of Kane, Adventure Boy extraordinaire!

The Adventure Boys meet next on Thursday, July 31st at 4 pm.
