Out of the Ordinary Book Group
About this event
Meet Kell, a young man with an extraordinary gift: unlike almost everyone else, he can travel from one version of London to another, moving between parallel worlds the way ordinary people walk from one room to another. His job: carrying correspondence between the rulers of Red London (a city rich in magic), White London (where the relentless fight to control magic is destroying the city), and Grey London (where magic no longer exists—the London of our own past). Kell also has a secret sideline: he smuggles artifacts from one London to another, getting top prices from collectors. When he gets caught up in a bad deal in Grey London, he goes on the run, at his side a clever thief named Delilah, who helps Kell elude his pursuers, desperately trying to find a way not only to save Kell’s life, but also to protect the parallel worlds themselves.
The Out of the Ordinary Book Group meets the third Thursday of the month at 7:30 pm. Participants can grab a copy of the book being discussed one month before the discussion date at the Adult Reference Desk, or check out a copy through Libby/Overdrive and Hoopla.
