Next Not-So-Young Adult Book Group

The next meeting of the NSYA book group will be on June 15th at 7pm in the Robbins Library Conference Room.

mybrotherWe’ll be reading a classic, My Brother Sam is Dead by James Lincoln Collier.

Here’s the description from Goodreads:

The Revolutionary War comes alive in this contemporary classic for young adults. The War had no clear-cut loyalties–it divided families, friends and towns. Young Tim Meeker’s 16-year-old brother goes off to fight with the Patriots while his father remains a reluctant British Loyalist in the Tory town of Redding, CT. Tim’s always looked up to his brother, who’s smart and brave. With the war soon raging, Tim knows he’ll have to make a choice — between the Revolutionaries and the Redcoats . . . and between his brother and his father. Over the course of the war Tim learns that life teaches some bitter lessons and does not guarantee clear answers. 

Copies are available now at the front desk. I hope to see many of you for our discussion next month!
