Book Review: Ready Player One

By Kara Rumble 

During the month of March, the Sequoyah Regional Library System presents its annual convention: Sequoyah-Con! All ages are invited to the R.T. Jones and Woodstock libraries for a day of celebrating fandoms of all kinds. As always, Sequoyah-Con is free to attend. 

This year, each branch will have its own day of festivities. R.T. Jones Memorial Library is hosting Pokemon-themed events on March 4, featuring crafts, trivia, and a costume contest. Woodstock Public Library is hosting cryptid-themed events on March 18, featuring a special Bigfoot story time with storyteller Tracy Walker, tabletop role playing games, and a presentation from professional paranormal investigators. The event includes activities that appeal to all ages, so grab a friend or bring the whole family for a fun-filled day. See the full schedule at

Video gamers and fans of the science fiction genre can pregame for Sequoyah-Con by reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. Follow Wade Watts, as he attempts to escape a dystopian society by exploring the world of virtual reality, going on a grand adventure to find an elusive Easter egg that is said to be the key to fortune. Along the way, Wade is joined by acquired comrades to help complete a series of missions, much like those seen in culturally beloved video games. Will Wade and his crew find treasure or terror? You’ll have to read the book to find out! 

The library is your place to find your next read and so much more. Check out a Chromebook or hotspot from the Library of Things collection, attend one of many library programs, or check out an Experience Pass for a free adventure to Zoo Atlanta, Georgia State Parks, and more. We hope to see you soon at the library.
