Wordstock works to create a community-wide discussion in Portland’s book clubs to coincide with the each festival. A book from one of the festival authors is selected for clubs to read and discuss.
… Boys and girls, step right up to see the wonder, the spectacle, the unusual collection of words that is the fantastical, magical, whimsical Wordstock 2012 Book Club Pick: Erin Morgenstern’s “The Night Circus”.
“The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not.”
In this way, “The Night Circus” is a bit like Morgenstern herself. The Night Circus is her debut novel and she’s already snagged an Alex Award and piles of glowing reviews. You’ll understand why when you meet Celia, a five year old with psychokinetic abilities. Get your copy now, before it disappears!
