Teen Book Club: The Graveyard Book

Our teen book club debuts on Wednesday, March 15 at 3:00 pm. We hope you’ll join us for conversation and camaraderie as we discuss this month’s selection and decide on future book choices.

This month we’re reading The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. Attend the tale of Nobody “Bod” Owens, who grew up in a graveyard, was raised by ghosts, and comes of age facing *ahem* grave peril. From ghosts to ghouls to attacks from the Jack, join Bod’s arcane adventures. Learn how, in the words of Audrey Niffenegger, “It takes a graveyard to raise a child."
