Books & Bites Book Discussion: Paperboy, by Vince Vawter
Glen Cove Public Library, Tuesday, August 5 at 5:30pm
Join us as we discuss Paperboy by Vince Vawter over snacks! An 11-year-old boy living in Memphis in 1959 throws the meanest fastball in town, but talking is a whole different ball game. He can barely say a word without stuttering, not even his own name. So when he takes over his best friend's paper route for the month of July, he knows he'll be forced to communicate with the different customers, including a housewife who drinks too much and a retired merchant marine who seems to know just about everything. The newspaper route poses challenges, but it's a run-in with the neighborhood junkman, a bully and thief, that stirs up real trouble–and puts the boy's life, as well as that of his family's devoted housekeeper, in danger. Pick up a copy of the book at the Teen Desk. (added from Eventkeeper)… (more)

He is the author of the bestselling Magicians trilogy, which opened with The Magicians (“Stirring, complex, adventurous…a superb coming of age fantasy.” – Junot Diaz), and its sequel The Magician King (“a spellbinding stereograph, a literary adventure novel that is also about privilege, power and the limits of being human.” – NPR). Legions of fans now await The Magician's Land, a novel full of the subversive brilliance that has put Grossman at the forefront of modern fantasy, which will bring the Magicians trilogy to a shattering, triumphant conclusion, and Greenlight is thrilled to host the book’s official launch. Grossman will be joined by fellow acclaimed fantasy writers Lauren Oliver (Before I Fall and the Delirium trilogy), Margaret Stohl (Beautiful Creatures), Erin Morgenstern (The Night Circus), and Lev’s twin brother Austin Grossman (Soon I Will Be Invincable, You) among others, for a dramatic presentation and discussion of the new novel. The formal event will be preceded by a Magicians trivia contest at 7:00 PM, with Magicians-related swag for the most knowledgeable fans.
