We’ve talked about the future; we’ve talked about the past; join us as we venture out of reality and into the land of magic, myth, and fairy tale. Mark your calendars for Monday, June 22 at 7pm so you can contribute to the discussion and get recommendations from your fellow readers and your trusty librarian. As usual, we’ll meet in the conference room on the fourth floor of the Robbins Library, and all are welcome – even if you’ve never come to a book chat before!
Some magic, myth, and fairy tale books to get your ideas flowing:
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling (of course!)
Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett (really, anything by Neil Gaiman or Terry Pratchett; we could probably spend the whole hour talking about just these two!)
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Gretel and the Dark by Eliza Granville
Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm translated by Philip Pullman, also the author of the His Dark Materials trilogy (The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, The Amber Spyglass)
What are your favorite magical, mythical books? Tell us on June 22 (or in the comments on this post).
