ONE BOOK / ONE GLENDALE...for younger readers

Twelve-year-old Derek has his entire summer planned out. He plans to devote the entire time to water balloon wars, tennis ball tosses and other boyish pursuits. But suddenly when his mother tells him that he is going to Learning Camp instead, the summer looks bleak as the last thing he wants to do is to spend the summer improving his vocabulary and reading skills. Lucky for him though he makes some new friends, has some adventures, solves a mystery and even learns a few things during the summer in MY LIFE AS A BOOK by Janet Tashjian chosen for this year's community-wide reading book for younger readers. Copies of the book are available at all of the Glendale Libraries except the Brand Library to check out this enjoyable read and be sure to look at the illustrations drawn by the author's fourteen-year-old son Jake. For grades 4 and older.

The author will be speaking about this book and others that she has written, answering questions as well as signing books on Thursday, November 10, 2011 at the Central Library, 222 East Harvard Street, Glendale, CA 91205. For more information, please call (818) 548-2035.
