Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book Group: The Graveyard Book

Monday, October 25, 2021

Join us to discuss Neil Gaiman’s Hugo and Newberry Award-winning novel about Bod, an unusual boy who inhabits an unusual place: he's the only living resident of a graveyard.

This month we're getting spooky with Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book. 

"While his parents and older sister are being murdered by a sinister man called Jack, a toddler boy creeps out of his English home and ends up in the nearby cemetery. There, the spirits of the boy's parents ask two of the cemetery's residents, Mr. and Mrs. Owens, to care for their son. Childless in life and the few hundred years they've been dead, the Owens proudly accept the challenge in Neil Gaiman's creepy, adventurous, yet poignant novel of Nobody "Bod" Owens' coming of age.” (BookPage reviews)
