Forever Young: YA for Adults Book Club
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.
The group will meet the third Thursday of each month at 7 pm. Find more information and the link to join online meetings on Meetup.
