Online Author Talk with Gennifer Choldenko

Community Reads for Kids is a countywide reading program that encourages everyone in our community to read and discuss the same book. This year we are reading Dogtown, by Katherine Applegate and Gennifer Choldenko. Co-author Gennifer Choldenko will do an online author talk geared to classrooms but open to all on Tuesday, January 30, at 11:00 a.m. A recording will be available for a limited time.

Dogtown is a shelter for stray dogs, misbehaving dogs, and discarded robot dogs. Chance, a real dog, has been in Dogtown since her owners unwittingly left her with irresponsible dog-sitters. Metal Head is a robot dog who dreams of being back in a real home. And Mouse is a mouse who has the run of Dogtown, pilfering kibble and performing clever feats to protect the dogs he loves. When Chance and Metal Head embark on an adventure to find their forever homes, there is danger, cheese sandwiches, a charging station, and some unexpected kindnesses along the way.

Gennifer Choldenko is a Newbery Honor-winning American writer of popular books for children and adolescents. Her first novel, Notes From a Liar and Her Dog, was named "Best Book of the Year" by School Library Journal and her second, Al Capone Does My Shirts, part of Al Capone at Alcatraz series, won the 2005 Newbery Honor citation. Gennifer lives with her loyal husband and naughty dog in the San Francisco Bay Area.

There are copies of Dogtown and other books by Choldenko available for check out, especially as eBooks. Register here with your email to attend the Online Author Talk and register separately to attend the Online Book Discussion on Tuesday, January 23, at 4:00 p.m.
