Have you read Lois Lowry’s The Giver? Registration is underway on Eventkeeper for the "Yak & Snack" book discussion to be held on Saturday, January 31 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. One of the first dystopian young-adult novels, The Giver is set in the future, a time of perfection when everyone in the society is assigned a job and a function. Come share your thoughts on this society and these characters.

Students in Grades 6-12 are invited to this book discussion with YA Librarian Marge Kelly. Pick up a copy of the book in the ‘Tweens 'n’ Teens Room. Bring lunch. The Friends of the Garden City Public Library will provide beverages and dessert.
