Do you run a book club OR a STEM club? If so, enter the Back to School Book Club Giveaway!
In honor of the release of the The Daybreak Bond, and the paperback release of The Firefly Code, not to mention the start of school, I am running a giveaway aimed at teachers and librarians and others who run book clubs with kids. You can win a set of ten copies of The Firefly Code to read and discuss with your students; a hardcover of the sequel, The Daybreak Bond, and a Skype visit with me! Thanks to the generosity of Bloomsbury, TWO packages will be given away!
The Firefly Code and The Daybreak Bond are set in a future world with technological and biological advances, and offer an opportunity to talk about science, technology, and ethics. As such, it would be a great pick for a STEM club as well as a book club.
The Firefly Code “Will have children turning pages and thinking about important questions. An excellent choice for those who love Lois Lowry’s The Giver or Margaret Peterson Haddix’s sci-fi adventures.” – Booklist
“The themes are strong, and the depiction of a tightly controlled world at the expense of individuality will surely fascinate fans of Lois Lowry’s The Giver . . . A very good selection for middle grade readers drawn to high-concept science fiction.” – School Library Journal on The Firefly Code
“Readers with a passion for environmentalism and economic equality will be enthralled by this title that explores the impact of a world whose unrestrained consumption has harsh effects on others . . . A satisfying, thrilling sequel to The Firefly Code.” – School Library Journal on The Daybreak Bond
Some nitty gritty details:
- U.S. addresses only.
- Please enter only if you intend to read and discuss the book with students (discussion can be part of a class, like Lit Circles).
- Skype visit to be arranged at a mutually convenient time.
- Contest starts 9/6/17 and ends Monday 9/18/17 at 12:00 am.
