Greek Mythology

After a summer full of reading, the Phoenix Book Club started back up with a summer reading recap in September to introduce new members to the group. With summer behind us, we turned to Greek mythology for the fall, reading books based on or drawing from myths as well as some of the myths themselves. Plenty of books look to stories from ancient Greece for inspiration. Some are obvious, like the Percy Jackson books by Rick Riordan, but others are a little more subtle. Did you realize that J.K. Rowling used classic creatures from Greek mythology in the Harry Potter books? How often have you seen a fantasy novel mention a pegasus or a nymph? Those are from Greek myths too. Take a look at the list on the right to find books of Greek myths and books based on or using those myths and the characters and creatures from them.

For November we're getting haunted and reading ghost stories. Not just any horror or supernatural tale will do! It's got to have at least one ghost in it. They don't have to be scary, or even human (we've got a couple with ghost dogs!), but they do have to be spirits. If you know a 5th - 8th grader who might be interested, come take a look at the books I've put aside in the Children's Room or find a ghost story of your own and join us on November 12th at 7:00 p.m.
