We had a great discussion about Judy Blume’s Tiger Eyes last week. Thank you to everyone who came!
Our next meeting is actually pretty soon, on October 5 at 7pm. This time of year our meeting schedule gets a little wonky because of holidays, so be sure to check the book group page. We’ll be discussing Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson, a historical novel set in Philadelphia during an epidemic of yellow fever. Fourteen-year-old Mattie Cook is ambitious and adventurous and has grand plans for her life. But when everyone around her begins falling gravely ill, she must put her plans aside and simply survive.
The Not-So-Young Adult Book Group has read this author before, but it was a very different kind of book. Back in the spring of 2013 we read Wintergirls, a contemporary novel about eating disorders. It will be interesting to see how this historical novel compares!
As always, copies are available at the front desk at Robbins, and newcomers are encouraged to come.
At this meeting we’ll also be voting on upcoming books, as we only have one more chosen after this one. If you have suggestions, please share them in the comments!
