Fandom Fridays!

by McNally Robinson - Wednesday, Sep 24, 2014 at 7:43pm

SASKATOON- Hey there Fans of all things Fandom! If you're a middle and/or teen reader with a thirst for following the things you love, this is for you! Whether a seasoned fandom veteran or a novice looking for a place to get their fandom feet wet, this is the place to discuss all things Fandom**!

**Fandom: (consisting of fan [fanatic] plus the suffix -dom, as in kingdom) is a term that refers to a microcosm of people who are fans of a fiction genre. Apparently Fandom can be traced back to the 1930's! Who knew? It can also be characterized by a feeling of empathy and camaraderie with others who share a common interest. If you are an avid fan and follower of books, movies, television shows, comics, and/or anime, (etc.), chances are, you may already be a part of Fandom culture!

Hosted by our very own Fandom Guru, Tressa, you can expect an excellent evening and a chance to meet, hang out, play games, and participate in Fandom-related activities! We will be discussing a wide range of topics, including, but not limited to, fanfiction, cosplay, fan subculture, fan-created meta, and all things fandom related!

So feel free to join us every Friday at 7:00pm. Groups are always welcome!

Check out our excellent new Tumblr page,

For more info, call the kids desk (306)-955-1477

There is a $5.00 drop in charge to help cover the cost of refreshments/goodies (Mmmmmm! nom nom nom)

Phoebe G. Green: Lunch Will Never Be the Same by Veera Hiranandani (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Tuesday, Sep 23, 2014 at 6:12pm

Phoebe loves her pet fish, Betty #2 (named after Betty #1, may she rest in peace), making lists, and her best friend Sage. But when Camille, a tall French girl, arrives at school with unusual lunches, Phoebe's friendship with Sage doesn't seem so important anymore. Thanks to Camille, Phoebe discovers goat cheese, butter lettuce, and cilantro (although she's convinced that's not a real word). She's determined to get invited to her new friend's house for dinner to see what other mysterious food Camille eats. But what about Sage? Can Phoebe make a new friend and keep an old one?

Phoebe G. Green is a laugh out loud book. It has a big heart, a colourful story line, and snappy dialogue showing Phoebe as an average third grader just getting through life. I for one just got past the third grade, and I can relate. Losing your friend to be with someone else is devastating to anyone, but also teaches her the value of what you already have.

- Lily, a Two Thumbs Up reviewer

Phoebe G. Green: Lunch Will Never Be the Same will be available on October 7.
