Come join our teen book club! The selection for January's discussion is The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. As a companion to the book, also read D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths.

Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can't seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse - Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him.

When Percy's mom finds out, she knows it's time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he'll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods, where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea.

The book club is led by Karen Willey, an 18 year teaching veteran who has spent 17 of those years teaching Language Arts to middle school students.

The meeting will take place on Saturday, January 13th, beginning at 11:00 AM and ending around noon. Snacks and drinks will be served. No prior registration is required. For more information, call 302-226-2665.
