Bookmarks: A Book Club for Grades 7 & up - Cumming Library - December 4th at 1:00 p.m.

War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells

While I enjoy almost all books about aliens and outer space, The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells is even more amazing in that it was written in the 1890’s.  Way ahead of its time and one of the first of its kind, this book is a classic and still in print as it continues to entertain science fiction lovers.  The story covers the invasion of Martians in England during the late 19th century.  The narrator relays the excitement of the events in first person which include his descriptions, thoughts, feelings, and struggles as he watches the fearful demise of mankind.  This book is the December selection for the Bookmarks book club at the Cumming Library. This book club is designed for homeschooled students in grades 7 and up. Other teens who are available in the early afternoon are also welcome. Refreshments, donated by the FCPL Friends & Advocates, will be provided.

Registration is recommended.
