Now he has traveled about Britain again, by bus and train and rental car and on foot, to see what has changed—and what hasn’t.” -Amazon (added from Eventkeeper)… (more)

Book Club
Dighton Public Library, Tuesday, August 30 at 8pm
"In a land where magic is outlawed, a young boy is living a double life. Although Kay is training to be a knight, he has been secretly studying the forbidden ways of magic with Alamin, a powerful but eccentric wizard. When a band of goblins raids his village and enslaves his family and friends, Kay embarks on an adventure that takes him across the Kingdom of Gaspar and into the dark and treacherous caves of the Goblin Realm. What Kay doesn't realize is that his journey is leading him on a collision course with the Lord of Nyn- a being so powerful that none dare face him...not even Alamin himself!"--Back cover
The book club can count as one assignment toward 6th grade and 8th grade summer reading. You will be expected to discuss character development, the storyline and have an opinion about the book.
Snacks will be available. (added from Eventkeeper)
