‘Artemis Fowl’ book club for tweens and teens coming to Briggs Library

February 21, 2019 GMT

Students in grades six to 12 are invited to the first meeting of the Artemis Fowl Book Club at 4:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 25 at the Ironton location of Briggs Lawrence County Public Library.

Whether they’ve read the books before or are new to the series, young adult readers will talk about the adventures of boy genius, millionaire and criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl. The books combine science fiction, fantasy and crime - with Artemis (sometimes) as the criminal.

The club will discuss one book from the eight-book series each month through September.

The club coincides with the release of Disney’s “Artemis Fowl” movie in August.

Copies of the first book, “Artemis Fowl,” are available to check out at the Ironton library or through the library’s digital service, Hoopla.

Young children and their caregivers are invited to enjoy stories, music, rhymes, games and crafts at all Briggs Library locations. The weekly preschool schedule is:
