Winter Break Guys Read – Leviathan

by on December 19th, 2012

We had a blast at November’s Guys Read meeting held at The Wedge and Capanna.  We’re excited to get together again for a special Winter Break Guys Read this Friday, December 21st from 12-1 p.m. in Meeting Room E upstairs at ICPL for all guys in Grades 5-8.  We’ll be discussing Scott Westerfeld’s amazing steampunk alternate history novel Leviathan.

We’re excited to bring in a special guest this month, we’ll be joined by local tinkerer inventor Michael Webb and his hand built 3D Printer!  He’s kindly offered to show us how it works and we’ll have a chance to print off some cool Leviathan-inspired choice coins where one side will have a double-helix for the Darwinists and the other a wrench for the Clankers.  If you’ve never seen what these printers can do, be sure to check out the yoda video below!

Guys Read, is a larger literacy initiative founded by children’s author Jon Scieszka, and is designed to draw attention to boys’ literacy and to help boys become self-motivated, lifelong readers.

No reservation required but if you think you’ll come check it out then shoot me an email so I make sure to have enough food!
