Steven Layne, author of This Side of Paradise, Paradise Lost, and Mergers will be visiting our district from May 21-23, 2012. Every student in grade K-12 will have an opportunity to see Mr. Layne! We have multiple copies of his books so now is a great time to read them and prepare for this great opportunity! Mergers is about four teenagers, each with a special power, struggling to survive in a future where all the earth’s peoples have been combined into one race. This Side of Paradise tells the story of Jack, who doesn’t think he could be any more unhappy about being forced to move to a new town, but his troubles are just beginning as he uncovers a sinister plot that could destroy his entire family. In Paradise Lost we revisit Jack only to find out that things are still not what they seem… Stop by the library and grab one of these hot titles before they are all gone!
