Facilitated by Jennifer A. Hudson.

She earned her M.F.A. in Writing, with honors, from  Albertus Magnus College and has taught for several years at Southern Connecticut State University.

Books on Tap Reads ARTEMIS

RSVP for our Books on Tap discussion of Andy Weir’s “Artemis" at http://goo.gl/DhieHf. Don't forget to stop by the library to borrow a copy of the book. We'll get settled, order food/drinks, and catch up with everyone at 7pm on Tuesday, December 19th at The Sitting Duck Tavern. Our book discussion starts at 7:30pm. Cheers!

Jazz Bashara is a criminal.

Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you're not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent.

Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of her problems, as she learns that she's stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself—and that now, her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even riskier than the first.

Plot: Cole, Jay, Kai, Lloyd, Nya and Zane are six Lego teens who have extraordinary skills. They are all gifted ninjas, and they spend their nights defending their island of Ninjago against a host of enemy invaders. During the day, however, they lead a much different life. Despite their heroic actions, they must go to school like ordinary teenagers, and in a lot of ways, this causes them more stress than the epic battles they undertake at night. How long will they be able to maintain a healthy balance between their superhero-style defenses and the more ordinary task of high school?
