Literary Circle: City of Bones

Literary Circle - Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare’s ferociously entertaining fantasy, City of Bones, takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end. If you want to find out what happens, join us for a book discussion. 

Book One: City of Bones
Date: Wednesday, December 17th 
Time: 2:15 p.m. 
Location: Room 236

About City of Bones
When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder—much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing—not even a smear of blood—to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

Literary Circle is part of Mepham’s ELITE Program (Enriching Learners in Tomorrow's Education). ELITE is a promise to the future to enrich and inspire students by providing after school enrichment opportunities designed to educate the whole student.
