PLG Young Readers Book Group discusses The Golden Compass

Led by Greenlight marketing coordinator Stephanie, our young readers book group in PLG is geared toward kids ages 9 to 12, and reads great contemporary and classic chapter books. Parents are welcome (but not required) to attend, and pizza is served. For August, the group reads and discusses Phillp Pullman’s masterwork The Golden Compass – just in time for the release of his new epic fantasy trilogy The Book of Dust. In The Golden Compass, Lyra is rushing to the cold, far North, where witch clans and armored bears rule. North, where the Gobblers take the children they steal--including her friend Roger. North, where her fearsome uncle Asriel is trying to build a bridge to a parallel world. Can one small girl make a difference in such great and terrible endeavors? This is Lyra: a savage, a schemer, a liar, and as fierce and true a champion as Roger or Asriel could want. But what Lyra doesn't know is that to help one of them will be to betray the other.

Current book group picks are always 15% off at Greenlight, in the store or online.
