The Forever Young Book Club is for those of us who like to read Young Adult/Teen literature, but are a little more "A" than "Y". Monthly books will be a mix of forgotten favorites (out in paperback) and newly-released titles (available in hardcover), with the intent to hold a lively monthly discussion and perhaps enjoy an author event or two. Moderated by Quail Ridge bookseller Broche Fabian. Here's her picture so you can find her. :)
The group will meet the third Thursday of each month at 7 pm.
July 20: Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan (published 2010). We'll also choose among three selections for the September 21 meeting.
August 17: A Girl of the Limberlost by Gene Stratton-Porter (published 1909)
September 21: the winner of voting at the July meeting. The selection will be one of these: Saints and Misfits by S.K. Ali, The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee, or Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo (all published 2017)
One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, Will Grayson crosses paths with . . . Will Grayson. Two teens with the same name, running in two very different circles, suddenly find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, and culminating in epic turns-of-heart and the most fabulous musical ever to grace the high school stage.
Rejected by her embittered mother and scorned by her classmates, Elnora Comstock seeks consolation in nature amid the wilds of eastern Indiana's Limberlost Swamp. Teeming with danger as well as beauty, the vast marshland offers Elnora an unexpected way to build a better life.
