Phoenix Book Club - Mythology 2017
This month we dove into mythology from around the world for our book discussion!
Authors like Rick Riordan and J.K. Rowling are well known not just for writing popular children's novels, but for making use of mythology and folklore in their books. This month we went beyond the bigger names to take a look at what other books out there use mythology as a jumping-off point. Okay, we read some Rick Riordan too, but how could we not? He's written books based in Greek and Roman mythology, Egyptian mythology, and his newest series features Norse mythology! He's all over the map. We found that Norse mythology is actually pretty popular these days, which is a change from a few years back when we last did mythology-based stories.
For February month we'll be reading award winning novels from years past. Take a look here to place a hold or two or pick one up in the Children's Room and join us on February 14th at 7:00 p.m. in the Children's Room!
