grasshopperjungleOnly two things, apparently. That is, according to Austin, the teenage protagonist of Andrew Smith’s  novel “Grasshopper Jungle.” In Ealing, Iowa, Austin and his best friend, Robby, have accidentally unleashed an unstoppable army of horny, hungry, six-foot-tall praying mantises. “This is truth. This is history. It’s the end of the world. And nobody knows anything about it. You know what I mean.”

Join us Tuesday June 23rd at 7:30 pm at Napper Tandy’s to talk about “Grasshopper Jungle” – I can guarantee it’s like no other book you’ve ever read. And I am so looking forward to it. Copies are available at the Reference Desk.
