Bestselling author John Stephens joins us to discuss his new book, The Fire Chronicles (Random House, $17.99), sequel to The Emerald Atlas. Perfect for fans of Harry Potter and the Percy Jackson series!After the tumultuous events of last winter, Kate, Michael, and Emma long to continue the hunt for their missing parents. But they themselves are now in great danger, and so the wizard Stanislaus Pym hides the children at the Edgar Allan Poe Home for Hopeless and Incorrigible Orphans. There, he says, they will be safe. How wrong he is. The children are soon discovered by their enemies, and a frantic chase sends Kate a hundred years into the past, to a perilous, enchanted New York City. Searching for a way back to her brother and sister, she meets a mysterious boy whose fate is intricately—and dangerously—tied to her own. Meanwhile, Michael and Emma have set off to find the second of the Books of Beginning. A series of clues leads them into a hidden world where they must brave harsh polar storms, track down an ancient order of warriors, and confront terrible monsters. Will Michael and Emma find the legendary book of fire—and master its powers—before Kate is lost to them forever? Exciting, suspenseful, and brimming with humor and heart, the next installment of the bestselling Books of Beginning trilogy will lead Kate, Michael, and Emma closer to their family—and to the magic that could save, or destroy, them all.

Welcome to the Garden's first ever book club for readers 8-12! It will be a regular EVERY-THIRD-WEDNESDAY thing, from now on, through the summer and into the school year. We will sometimes do some book-related crafts and we will always serve piping hot FREE pizza from our friends over at Snoose Junction.
Our intention is to choose books that will interest both boys and girls, especially in this age bracket. I suspect that as the Society grows, we’ll read a variety of books based on the particular interests of the different kids who show up on a regular basis.
We would ask you to encourage your kids to come to society meetings even if they aren’t necessarily interested in this book. As long as they’re interested in reading, we’ll be happy to have them.
The goal of our this club's fearless leader (the amazing Becky M.) is to introduce titles that will pleasantly surprise society members, like all book clubs, titles may not be ones members would choose to read on their own. She’ll definitely be open to book suggestions from the kids, but she will try to have three options for them to choose from every month to keep things simple.
The Young Readers’ Society will be about giving kids a safe place to talk about books and reading and to express their opinions openly. Parents will be encouraged to browse the shop, or grab a bite to eat in Ballard, but as far as the Society goes – no grown-ups allowed!
Don’t hesitate to call Becky M. anytime with questions/comments. Or, you can write her directly by clicking the contect us text above left.
