Start: 7:00 pm
Tuesday December 4th, 2012. 7 p.m. Join us as friend of the store Glenn Currie presents his newest novel, Surviving Seventh Grade, a very humorous sequel to A Boy's First Diary. Whether it is called junior high or middle school, the world changes as boys move from the cloistered classrooms of grade school, to a larger, more complex society, and deal with the hormonal earthquakes of puberty. In Surviving Seventh Grade, by Glenn K. Currie provides a humorous and informative look at this environment from the viewpoint of a thirteen-year-old boy, just in time for the holidays. The book is set in the 1950’s, which allows readers to focus on life without the complications of smart phones, video games and even computers. If you grew up in the 50's or 60's, this book will have you in stitches as you identify each character as someone from your childhood!  Glenn K. Currie’s previous young adult book, A Boy’s First Diary (2007), looked at life in the fourth and fifth grades, and was met with broad critical acclaim. It was “strongly recommended” by the Midwest Book Review.  Writers Digest wrote “I loved this collection”. And, among a large number of letters from grade school students, was this thoughtful critique from Jeffrey, age 10, “You are the greatest writer in the world”.  Can't make the event?

"Rarely is a first novel as smart and engaging and learned and funny and moving as The Borrower." —Richard Russo
