Virtual Book Club – January 2023
January 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
For this month, Barbara McKay’s Book Club will read the fantasy genre classic, “The Golden Compass” by Phillip Pullman. This is Book 1 of the His Dark Materials Trilogy.
Lyra is rushing to the cold, far North, where witch clans and armored bears rule. North, where the Gobblers take the children they steal–including her friend Roger. North, where her fearsome uncle Asriel is trying to build a bridge to a parallel world.
Can one small girl make a difference in such great and terrible endeavors? This is Lyra: a savage, a schemer, a liar, and as fierce and true a champion as Roger or Asriel could want–but what Lyra doesn’t know is that to help one of them will be to betray the other
The Southbury Library will hold copies of this novel for the AE Book Club.
