‘Ranger’s Apprentice’ read-a-thon
Rockland — On Saturday, Nov. 10 from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., avid readers of John Flanagan’s exciting “Ranger’s Apprentice” series are invited to gather together in a specially designated spot in Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St., filled with comfy seating and plenty of food. Prizes will be given for the most pages read each hour. Participants can bring their own copies or read from the library's complete Flanagan series.
A medieval fantasy series that began as stories written for the author’s son, the “Ranger’s Apprentice” books follow the adventures of Will, a small and lively 15-year-old boy living in medieval Castle Redmont. Rejected for training as a warrior-knight, Will is apprenticed instead to the Ranger Corps, a mysterious group who act as the King’s eyes and ears throughout the mythical world of Araluen and beyond its shores. The villagers believe the Rangers practice magic that makes them invisible to ordinary people. Highly trained in the skills of battle and surveillance, they fight the battles before the battles reach the people. And as Will is about to learn, there is a large battle brewing.
The “Ranger’s Apprentice” series is an international bestseller and is available in 14 countries. For more information about the series, visit rangersapprentice.com. For more information about the library program, call Jean Young at 594-0310.
