artemis fowl bookJoin our Artemis Fowl Book Group

Please join our online book club for “Artemis Fowl”.  Together we’ll read the first book in the series prior to the June 12th release of the movie on Disney+. (See the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fl2r3Fwxz_o)

Artemis is a criminal mastermind who attempts to steal fairy gold in order to restore his family’s fortune. The story is an action-packed fantasy filled with adventure that appeals to all ages and would be perfect for family members reading together.

Members of the book club will receive, via email, optional discussion questions and loads of fun extras such as codes & ciphers, trivia questions, word searches, information about the author, and ideas for activities and crafts to go along with the story. Everything is optional and reading is done at your own pace. We look forward to reading with you!

Ebook and downloadable audiobook versions of Artemis Fowl can be borrowed from the library using Hoopla and OverDrive.
