All rising 6th - 12th graders are invited to join us for our final Teen Summer Reading Program movie based on a book celebrating the theme Beneath the Surface. Join us for The Host, based on the novel by Stephenie Meyer. According to Amazon.com, "...Earth has been taken over by aliens in crisp white outfits - each one taking over a human 'host' so that the alien race can save the planet." Everything and everyone are not as they seem on the surface. Pizza and sodas will be served and copies of the book will be raffled. For those who have read the book, a copy of the movie will be raffled to those who submit a book review at the program. Don't forget to keep turning in your book reviews for the Teen Summer Reading Program. This event is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library.
