From Metuchen Public LIbrary:
On Sunday, October 25 at 2PM at the Metuchen Public Library, Metuchen's teens are
invited to celebrate Teen Read Week with a book discussion of the classic work of
science fiction, Ender's Game (1985) by Orson Scott Card. After the discussion, a short
video with the author will be shown and refreshments will be served.
Registration is open now. The first 18 people who sign up in-person at the Library for
this program will receive a free copy of Ender's Game, compliments of the Friends of
the Library. For more information, call 732-632-8526 or write the Young Adult Librarian
Set in Earth's future, Ender's Game presents an imperiled society that has
barely survived two conflicts with an alien race known as the "Buggers". The world's
most talented children are taken into Battle School where they are trained in the art
of war through increasingly difficult games, including ones where Ender
Wiggin's genius is revealed. The novel is the first in a series by Card, which has
recently been adapted into a comic book format by Marvel.
