Escondido, CAEscondido Public Library’s Read, Eat, and Discuss (R.E.A.D.) Middle Grade Book Club for children, ages 9-12, will meet on Friday, January 12, 2018, in the Turrentine Room from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. Participants will explore Molly Ostertag’s graphic novel, The Witch Boy. Registration is required and now open at library.escondido.org/register. Circulating copies of the book are available for checkout and can be obtained at the Youth Services desk, while supplies last. To reserve a copy, visit the Library’s catalog at library.escondido.org.

In Aster’s community, everyone is born to practice a certain kind of magic: boys learn to shapeshift and girls master “witchery,” or spells and potions. Aster feels his true talents lie in witchery and not shapeshifting, but everyone tells him he must conform according to an ancient code created for the good of all. When one of the boys mysteriously disappears, Aster will have to decide whether to follow the rules or use a bit of magic, even if it means risking frightening consequences.

Library programs are free and open to the public. For more information on this and other Library programs, visit the Library’s website at library.escondido.org or contact Children’s Librarian Kristine Macalalad at 760-839-5458 or kmacalalad@escondido.org. Escondido Public Library is located at 239 S. Kalmia St., Escondido, CA 92025.
