All Things Considered, the NPR news program, is starting a book club for public radio listeners age 9-14 called the Backseat Book Club.
They’re kicking things off with The Graveyard Book, an appropriate choice in that it’s a fitting story for the month of October, and it’s both well-written and well-read by Neil Gaiman. The NPR article is short on details (what day(s) and time(s) to listen, for example), and the link to the book club’s main page is broken, so I’ll update this post as I find out more.
And by the way, I chose to show the book cover without the Newbery medal, because it makes it much easier to see the boy’s profile in the side of the tombstone. Yes, the gold sticker fits perfectly there, but it does rather obscure the optical illusion a bit.
