    THE STORY OF ARTHUR TRULUV
    by ELIZABETH BERG If you want to read a thoroughly engaging story, this is it. It centers on a recently–widowed elderly man who takes the bus each day to have lunch at the grave of his beloved late wife. This is not a sad visit for him, but a time to remember all the good times he had with his wife. One afternoon an 18-year old girl who visits the cemetery to get away from annoying kids at school happens upon Arthur and the two of them develop a surprising friendship, a friendship that turns friends into family. Before long a third person enters the trio and their unusual bonding creates a blessing for each one.

GORDON KORMAN DEBUTS KIDS' NOVEL

TUESDAY, JANUARY 30; 7 PM

Popular children’s author GORDON KORMAN will introduce SUPERGIFTED, the funny, heartwarming sequel to his very successful Ungifted. We meet Donovan Curtis who has never been what anyone would call “gifted.” But his genius friend Noah Youkilis is actually supergifted, with one of the highest IQs around. After years at the Academy for Scholastic Distinction, all Noah dreams of is the opportunity to fail if he wants to. And he’s landed in the perfect place to do it—Donovan’s school.

Almost immediately, Noah finds himself on the wrong side of cheerleading captain Megan Mercury and alpha jock Hash “Hashtag” Taggart. Sticking up for Noah lands Donovan in the middle of a huge feud with Hashtag. He’s told to stay away from the sports star—or else. That should be the end of it, but when a freak incident suddenly makes Donovan a hero, he can’t tell anyone about it since Hashtag is involved. So Noah steps in and becomes “Superkid.” Now he’s gone from nerd to titan at school. And it may have gone more than a little bit to his head. HARPER COLLINS CHILDREN’S BOOKS
