Escondido Public Library Teen Book Club Discusses A Girl Called Fearless with author Catherine Linka 

04/06/16 Categories: Library

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT: Cathy Janovitz, 760-839-4283

 

Escondido, CA – Escondido Public Library’s Burritos & Book Club for teens, ages 13 to 18, meets on Saturday, May 7, 2016, in the Turrentine Room from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. A Girl Called Fearless, by Catherine Linka, is the selected title and copies are available for checkout at the Library’s Information Desk or can be reserved using the Library’s online catalog at library.escondido.org.  Students can also check out copies from the school libraries at Escondido High School, San Pasqual High School, and Orange Glen High School. The highlight of this month’s Book Club is a guest appearance by author Catherine Linka, who will discuss her book and answer questions.

A romantic, thought-provoking, and frighteningly real story, A Girl Called Fearless takes place ten years after a synthetic hormone in beef has killed fifty million American women. Avie is living the normal life of a privileged teen, dreaming about her future and what she’ll make of her life. Her father, in a desperate effort to save his struggling company, has contracted Avie in marriage to a much older and very powerful man. Now her only two choices are to either be trapped in a marriage with a controlling politician or run across the border to Canada, leaving behind her best friend Yates. As her feelings for Yates develop into something more than friendship, the decision to leave becomes more difficult, but staying could cost her life.

In addition to discussing A Girl Called Fearless, teens can share their opinions and ideas about other books they have enjoyed and propose titles for the next Burritos & Book Club meeting. The selected book will be discussed at the next meeting on Wednesday, July 6, 2016. Complimentary burritos will be provided, and all participants receive a free book or audiobook at the end of the program.

This program is generously sponsored by Friends of the Escondido Pubic Library and Taco Bell located at 1944 E. Valley Parkway in Escondido. Library programs, events, and services are free and open to the public. Escondido Public Library is located at 239 South Kalmia Street in Escondido, California.

04/04/16

CONTACT: Kristina Owens

PHONE: 760-839-4519

 

Weather permitting, Queen Califia’s Magical Circle in Kit Carson Park (3333 Bear Valley Parkway) will be open to the public this Saturday, April 9, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Queen Califia docents will be on site to answer questions. 

Queen Califia's Magical Circle is the only American sculpture garden and the last major international project created by French artist Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002). Inspired by California's mythic, historic, and cultural roots, the garden consists of nine large-scale sculptures, a circular "snake wall" and maze entryway, sculpturally integrated bench seating and native shrubs and trees planted within the interior plaza and along the outer perimeter. The garden bears the brilliant, unique mosaic ornamentation that is an unmistakable part of de Saint Phalle's later work. Complete restoration of the exhibit is underway and will continue for the next several months.
