Our Middle Grade Book Club (ages 8-13) continues on Saturday, January 19 at 3 PM! Our next read will be THE CAMELOT CODE by Mari Mancusi.

How it works:

1. Purchase a copy of the book from the store for your middle grader.

2. Middle grader reads the book!

3. Come to the store for a book club discussion with fellow readers, facilitated by our Children’s Programming Director Joy along with author Mari Mancusi herself!

Parents are welcome as well, but the focus will be on letting our young readers discuss their opinions of the book and its story. Light refreshments will be provided. Books available for purchase through the store.

More about the book:

When young Arthur of Camelot accidentally time-travels to the 21st century and Googles himself, he discovers the not-so-happily ever after in store for him once he pulls the sword from the stone. What’s a once-and-future king to do? Easy: stay in the future, where he’ll actually have a future-and join the football team instead.

Now, with the help of the great wizard Merlin, modern-day gamer-geeks Sophie and Stu find themselves in a race against time to get that sword pulled from the stone and the stubborn soon-to-be-king Arthur back to the past where he belongs.

About the author:

Mari Mancusi always wanted a dragon as a pet. Unfortunately, the fire insurance premiums proved a bit too large and her house a bit too small, so she chose to write about them instead. Today she works as an award-winning young adult author and freelance television producer, for which she has won two Emmys. When not writing about fanciful creatures of myth and legend, Mari enjoys traveling, cosplay, snowboarding, watching cheesy (and scary) horror movies, and her favorite guilty pleasure--playing videogames. A graduate of Boston University, she lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband, Jacob, daughter, Avalon, and their two dogs. Visit her at marimancusi.com or follow her @marimancusi.
