NPR Hosts Book Club for Younger Readers

Hot on the heels of Teen Read Week and just in time for Halloween, NPR presents a book club for kids age 9 – 14 and, right off the bat, members will be reading Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book.

A couple of extra-cool features about this club and its first selection: You can watch this video on Mouse Circus, Gaiman’s website for young readers, of the author reading his book. This offers young readers the opportunity to gauge their own impressions, then see how the author interprets his writing. And, on Halloween (Monday, Oct. 31), NPR’s afternoon news program, “All Things Considered,” will chat with Gaiman about The Graveyard Book and answer listener questions.

Full details are here, including a link to submit your questions and thoughts about The Graveyard Book.
