The Book of Boy
Newbery Honor Book Celebration!

Catherine Gilbert Murdock’s The Book of Boy was selected as one of two Newbery Honor titles for this year. Full of magic, intrigue and mystery, this epic tale set in the 14th century follows a young boy’s quest as he and a mysterious pilgrim search for relics of St. Peter! Fans of The Inquisitor’s Tale or Where the Mountain Meets the Moon will love this book.

We are excited to be able to invite you to come meet Catherine Murdock and help her celebrate The Book of Boy’s selection as a 2019 Newbery Honor Book!
