SATURDAY, JANUARY 21
3pm | TEMPE | TEEN EVENT | TEEN ADVISORY BOARD (FORMERLY TURNING PAGES BOOK GROUP) | THE FORGETTING | Teens meet to discuss the winner of the Parents' Choice Gold Award, The Forgetting, by Sharon Cameron. Nadia lives in the city of Canaan, where life is safe and structured, hemmed in by white stone walls and no memory of what came before. But every twelve years the city descends into the bloody chaos of the Forgetting, a day of no remorse, when each person's memories — of parents, children, love, life, and self — are lost. Unless they have been written. In Canaan, your book is your truth and your identity, and Nadia knows exactly who hasn't written the truth. Because Nadia is the only person in Canaan who has never forgotten. More »

SUNDAY, JANUARY 22
5:30pm | PHOENIX | TEEN EVENT | TEEN ADVISORY BOARD | SCYTHE | Teens meet to discuss the first in a new series from Neal Shusterman, author of the New York Times bestselling Unwind dystology. A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery: humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now Scythes are the only ones who can end life — and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control. Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe — a role that neither wants. These teens must master the "art" of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own. More »

MONDAY, JANUARY 23
6-7pm | PHOENIX | SILENT BOOK CLUB | Often with traditional book clubs, there's the scramble to finish the assigned book, and the pressure to have something smart to say. Wouldn't it be great to have a book club where you could just enjoy books, friends, and wine—without any homework? Now you do! Bring a book (or buy one for 15% off) and join us for an hour of silent reading at our own First Draft Book Bar in Phoenix. We're extending happy hour prices until 7pm! More »

TUESDAY, JANUARY 24
7pm | TEMPE | FAMILY EVENT | JAMES RILEY | STORY THIEVES: SECRET ORIGINS | The New York Times bestselling author of the Half Upon a Time trilogy presents the third book in the bestselling Story Thieves series. Owen and Bethany have sworn off jumping into books for good. But they didn't make any promises about not jumping through strange portals that lead to a comic book world. Jupiter City was once filled with brightly costumed superheroes and villains, but nowadays, there's nothing left but the Dark. Even the villains are terrified of the Dark's shadows, and most of the heroes have either disappeared or been lost to mind control. How can Bethany and Owen defeat the Dark without superpowers of their own? They'll definitely need the help of some old friends and new allies to bring the light back to Jupiter City, and find out the truth behind the Dark. More »
