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
Jan. 19 - Gunslinger Girl by Lyndsay Ely (the author will be present!)
Feb. 22 - Cinder by Marissa Meyer (held in conjunction with Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book Club)
March 15 - Eight Cousins by Louisa May Alcott
April 19 - Dread Nation by Justina Ireland
James Patterson presents a bold new heroine--a cross between Katniss Everdeen and Annie Oakley: Serendipity Jones, the fastest sharpshooter in tomorrow's West.
The first book in the #1 New York Times- and USA Today-Bestselling Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer See where the futuristic YA fairytale saga all began, with the tale of a teenage cyborg who must fight for Earth's survival against villains from outer space.
When Rose Campbell, a shy orphan, arrives at "The Aunt Hill" to live with her six aunts and seven boisterous male cousins, she is quite overwhelmed. How could such a delicate young lady, used to the quiet hallways of a girls' boarding school, exist in such a spirited home? It is the arrival of Uncle Alec that changes everything.
At once provocative, terrifying, and darkly subversive, Dread Nation is Justina Ireland's stunning vision of an America both foreign and familiar--a country on the brink, at the explosive crossroads where race, humanity, and survival meet.
