Andover Teens Read The Book Thief
for One Book, One Community

Have you ever heard of everyone in a town reading the same book? Andover did it a couple of years ago, and we're doing it again now!

Read The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. It's been a bestseller for the last 4 years. Now, they're making it into a movie!

Not enough to peak your interest? Check out some book trailers made by fans like movie previews) for the book. They might just sway you! Google "book thief trailers" to see more.

We'll be discussing the book at Pizza & Pages, Friday, April 20 at noon, and again at Cookies and Conversation on Tuesday, April 24 at 3:30pm. Pre-registration is required.

Prefer not to talk about the book? Come to a Crafternoon on Wednesday, April 11 and/or April 25 at 3pm. We'll be making something related to The Book Thief!
