Hi, guys! We (Lora Lynn and I) will be having the Howl's Moving Castle discussion on October 20, 2012. It will be held at 9 Spoons in Bayleaf Hotel. Time is from 1pm to 4pm.
To check the place out, here's a review of the venue: http://www.ourawesomeplanet.com/awesome/2012/01/bayleafs-9-spoons-sky-deck-and-cioccolata.html
So, some things about Howl's Moving Castle from Wikipedia:
This is a young adult fantasy novel by British author Diana Wynne Jones, first published in 1986. It won a Boston Globe-Horn Book Award and was named an ALA Notable Book for both children and young adults. In 2004 it was adapted as an Academy Award-nominated animated film by Hayao Miyazaki. A sequel, Castle in the Air, was published in 1990. A second sequel, House of Many Ways was released in June 2008.
The author was given the idea for this book when a young boy asked her to make a story called "The Moving Castle".
We will only be discussing the first book but you are very welcome to read the other two and watch the movie for comparison (or if you're just curious, hehe). We have set up an FB events page for those who have questions and interested to join.
You may post any questions, suggestions, discussions or what have yous for this book. Hope we see you!
