A double shot of YA Rocket Boys event recaps.

The High School Book Club met on 4/10 at Buena Vista to discuss Rocket Boys by Homer J. Hickam as part of our Burbank Reads celebration. The teens enjoyed eating Moonpies and posing for this picture. Many of them also enjoyed watching October Sky (the film) on their own. We also read Project 17 by Laurie Faria Stolarz and The Art of War by Sun Tzu.

Our next meeting (last one for the school year) is on 5/15 at Buena Vista 6:30 pm. We will be reading Sabriel by Garth Nix and Alanna by Tamora Pierce.


TALES OF THE PARANORMAL with James Underdown from Center for Inquiry West, Hollywood – We had 95 attend our Burbank Reads YA show at Buena Vista on 4/16. Everyone had a lot of fun debating with Mr Underdown about aliens, crop circles, and UFOs. We had quite a lot of adults attend and the kids asked really interesting questions. A good time was had by all!
Thanks to Melissa and Katherine for the recaps and the photos!
