We will be discussing THE LION OF MARS by Jennifer L. Holm.

This event will be hosted on Zoom. Please register for the meeting here.


How It Works:

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

2. Middle grader reads the book!

3. Tune into the meeting on Saturday, February 20 at 3pm for a book club discussion with fellow readers, facilitated by our Children’s Programming Director, Joy.

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


More about THE LION OF MARS:

Blast off with New York Times bestselling and Newbery Honor-winning Jennifer L. Holm's out-of-this-world new novel about a kid raised on Mars who learns that he can't be held back by the fears of the grown-ups around him.

Bell has spent his whole life - all eleven years of it - on Mars. But he's still just a regular kid - he loves cats, any kind of cake, and is curious about the secrets the adults in the US colony are keeping. Like, why don't have contact with anyone on the other Mars colonies? Why are they so isolated? When a virus breaks out and the grown-ups all fall ill, Bell and the other children are the only ones who can help. It's up to Bell - a regular kid in a very different world - to uncover the truth and save his family ... and possibly unite an entire planet.

Mars may be a world far, far away, but in the hands of Jennifer L. Holm, beloved and bestselling author of The Fourteenth Goldfish, it can't help but feel like home.
