  1. All Booked Up Book Group: The Big Read: A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. Le Guin

    February 13, 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM @ Library

    Originally published in 1968, Ursula K. Le Guin’s A Wizard of Earthsea marks the first of the six now beloved Earthsea titles. Ged was the greatest sorcerer in Earthsea, but in his youth he was the reckless Sparrowhawk. In his hunger for power and knowledge, he tampered with long-held secrets and loosed a terrible shadow upon the world. This is the tumultuous tale of his testing, how he mastered the mighty words of power, tamed an ancient dragon, and crossed death's threshold to restore the balance. The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest. Please visit www.cityofparkland.org/library or call (954)757-4207 for more information.
