Book group going beyond this world

GracelingA girl's deadly talent has made her valuable to the king of her land. But it's left her with a life that she doesn't even realize is about to change.

The Newcastle Public Library goes beyond the words of this world in its monthly Sci-Fi Book Club, next meeting at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, July 28, at the library.

This month's discussion will be on Graceling by Kristen Cashore. Copies of the book will be available for checkout at the front desk.

Refreshments will be provided for the group's discussion thanks to the Friends of the Newcastle Library.

The book club is for ages 18 and up, and registration is not required in advance to participate.
