Ender's Shadow Book Discussion at Cupertino Library

Posted on Thursday, September 12, 2013 by Cupertino_Library

For a book that has been around since 1985, it sure took Hollywood a long time to make Ender’s Game into a movie.

The author had a lot of reasons why he didn’t sell the rights for this book.    When he found the right people to work with and make it into a movie, the screenplay didn’t feel right.  He wrote it different ways but it was very awkward.

When someone suggested that he combine the books Ender’s Game and Ender’s Shadow, it all came together.  These two novels tell the same story but from different points of view.  So, to better understand the movie (before it comes out), we are having a 2-part book discussion for tweens and teens. 

We will be discussing Ender’s Shadow on Friday, September 20th at 4:00 pm.  This book discussion is open to students between 7th-10th grades.  Sign up in person at the Cupertino Library Children’s reference desk to get a copy of the book.  We’ll have pizza and a lively discussion.  See you there!
