    Young Readers LeagueRump

    Rump by Liesl Shurtliff is this year’s Young Readers League selection. In the spirit of One City, One Story, the Young Readers League was designed as a school-wide community reading extravaganza. As with the annual One City, One Story program a month long series of theme related programs and events are planned culminating with the author event. The program was established by Vroman’s Bookstore and is sponsored this year by The Friends of the Pasadena Public Library.

    We have over 20 events to celebrate Rump!  To view all Young Readers League events, CLICK HERE to download the brochure.
