Thursday night is Back-to-School Night, and the library will be open! Please come by and get to know our library. Parents can become patrons--it just takes a moment to sign up. At 5:00 that evening there is a general PTA meeting. Our PTA is terrific, full of nice people who work hard and accomplish incredible things for our school. I urge you to attend the meeting and support the PTA.
There are a couple of great literary events coming up! Tuesday, September 6, local author DJ MacHale will be appearing at Pages: A Bookstore to promote his brand-new book, The Curse of the Boggin! I am so eager to read this new, slightly scary, middle-grade novel! DJ is a terrific speaker and writer. He is well known here in the South Bay, so I would suggest RSVPing for this event by phone (310-318-0900) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Then, on Tuesday, September 28, James Dashner, author of the best-selling Maze Runner books, will be speaking at Mira Costa. Tickets are recommended but are free of charge. Mr. Dashner will be signing copies of his new book, The Fever Code, which can be ordered from the ticketing website.
