LongWalkToWater.pngGreenwich Library's Middle School Book Club will be meeting on Thursday, May 24th at 4:30 pm in the Meeting Room.  The title for discussion is "A Long Walk to Water" by Linda Sue Park. Here's a short summary:

"When the Sudanese civil war reaches his village in 1985, eleven-year-old Salva becomes separated from his family and must walk with other Dinka tribe members through southern Sudan, Ethiopia, and Kenya in search of safe haven. This 2013 Nutmeg Award nominee is based on the life of Salva Dut, who, after emigrating to America in 1996, began a project to dig water wells in Sudan."

If you're in grades 6, 7 or 8, you can register for the program and pick up a copy of the book at the 2nd floor reference desk. Please contact Teen Services Librarian Margaret Walsh at (203) 622-7915 for more information.

smokycorridor.pngBenjamin's back with two new reviews plus another take on a book previously reviewed by Michael.  First up is The Smoky Corridor by Chris Grabenstein:

The Smoky Corridor is a spine chilling book, the third in the Zach Jennings series. Personally, I think that this is Mr. Grabenstein's best book so far. It is about a boy named Zach Jennings who moves to a new school which has zombies roaming the halls! Unfortunately, only Zach can see the zombies. Almost immediately, the zombies start to cause trouble for Zach and it is up to him to get rid of the zombies once and for all.
