It's Book Crushin' Time!!

Are you a 3rd, 4th or 5th grader? If so, then come hang out with us at the Westover Library, as we join forces to discuss how we CRUSHED...The Inkwell Chronicles: The Ink of Elspet, Book 1!  

The Book Crushers Club meets in-person on the 2nd Wedneday of the month at 4:00pm. New members are always welcome. Oh! And just so you know, snacks and juice will be provided to help you power up! 

Book Description:

Immerse yourself in this fast-paced fantasy about magic ink, a secret society, and a boy who yearns to make his mark.

When their father goes missing after a mysterious train crash, Everett and his little sister Bea find a curious pen in his belongings, and its magical Ink begins to rewrite their once-ordinary lives. The Ink leads them to a world they never knew existed—one teeming with impossible magic, formidable allies, and villains who are determined to destroy everything they hold dear. Together, Everett and Bea embark on an adventure through secret tunnels in England and Scotland to find and protect the last Inkwell, and ultimately to save their father. But in order to do so, Everett must find a way to tap into the most magical power of all: his courage. Perfect for fans of The Silver Arrow, the Bookwanderers, and Inkheart, this classic battle of good and evil pits creativity against the forces that would seek to blot it out for good.
