So I’m back from the BookExpo trip in New York City with lots of great stuff for Summer Reading Program! Now is the time to get cracking and win some of the stellar prizes I smuggled back on the plane. Just a note to the now-seventh graders from Northside: I did get to meet Neil Gaiman, the author of the novel Coraline. He was very excited when I told him about everyone liking Coraline and is not half as creepy as you might expect! I also got to see some really cool things which I’ll be posting here in the near future. But enough about the Big Apple!
This week, we are having two programs. First will be Get Reel for Teens at 2:00PM on Friday afternoon. This week’s film is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory which is based on the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. If you’ve never seen this cult classic, be sure to bring a friend and join us for some candy (what else?) and fun! Don’t forget: we draw for the weekly Summer Reading Prizes after the movie!
We are also hosting our Summer Yu-Gi-Oh! Tournament this Saturday, June 11th at 1:00PM. Registration is required. Please call 641.2456 to register or for more information!
That’s all for now. Check back for photos from NYC!
