Pizza & Pages Book Club: Mortal Engines

mortal enginesIt’s time for our Pizza & Pages Book Club, especially for middle schoolers! In the distant future, when cities move about and consume smaller towns, a fifteen-year-old apprentice is pushed out of London by the man he most admires and must seek answers in the perilous Out-Country, aided by one girl and the memory of another. Read the book Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve, then come for a lively discussion, plus pizza and dessert.

Welcome to the astounding world of Predator Cities! London is hunting again. Emerging from its hiding place in the hills, the great Traction City is chasing a terrified little town across the wastelands. Soon, London will feed. In the attack, Tom Natsworthy is flung from the speeding city with a murderous scar-faced girl. They must run for their lives through the wreckage–and face a terrifying new weapon that threatens the future of the world. Beloved storyteller Philip Reeve creates a brilliant new world in the Predator Cities series, called “phenomenal…violent and romantic, action-packed and contemplative, funny and frightening” by the Sunday Times.

Tuesday, January 14 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Middle school students only. Advance registration required. Click here to register.
