The October meeting of Northwest Mississippi Community College’s Reading Roundtable, made possible with funds from Sycamore Bank, will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 30 at 2 p.m., in the R.C. Pugh Library on the Senatobia campus. Leading this month’s discussion will be Kristin Causey, Head Librarian, Senatobia Public Library.
Step into the enchanted kingdom of Brooklyn, where magic and danger lurks around every corner. When Vassa’s stepsister sends her out to buy lightbulbs in the middle of the night, she knows it could easily become a suicide mission.
Babs Yagg, the owner of the local convenience store, has a policy of beheading shoplifters, and sometimes innocent shoppers as well. But Vassa has a bit of luck hidden in her pocket – a gift from her dead mother. Erg is a tough-talking wooden doll with sticky fingers, a bottomless stomach, and ferocious cunning. With Erg’s help, Vassa just might be able to break the witch’s curse and free her Brooklyn neighborhood. But Babs won’t be playing fair.
Vassa in the Nightby Sarah Porter, a YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults selection, is a powerful and haunting tale for fans of urban fantasy, fairy tales, magic, and horror.
The purpose of the program is to provide a forum to read and discuss a variety of books during the course of every semester. Meetings are held on the last Tuesday of each month.
Participants must fill out a registration form, and those wishing to purchase a copy of the book being discussed may do so for $5. Personal or library copies may also be used.
