Next NSYA Book Group

Thanks to everyone who came to last night’s Not-So-Young Adult Book Group discussion!

Next month we’ll be meeting on April 19 at 7pm in the Robbins Library Conference Room to discuss Nation by Terry Pratchett. Here’s a descriptoin:

The sea has taken everything. Mau is the only one left after a giant wave sweeps his island village away. But when much is taken, something is returned, and somewhere in the jungle Daphne–a girl from the other side of the globe–is the sole survivor of a ship destroyed by the same wave. Together the two confront the aftermath of catastrophe. Drawn by the smoke of Mau and Daphne’s sheltering fire, other refugees slowly arrive: children without parents, mothers without babies, husbands without wives–all of them hungry and all of them frightened. As Mau and Daphne struggle to keep the small band safe and fed, they defy ancestral spirits, challenge death himself, and uncover a long-hidden secret that literally turns the world upside down.

Copies are available now at the front desk.

The Not-So-Young Adult Book Group is a book discussion group for adults in which we read and discuss books written for teens. It’s a casual friendly group and newcomers are always welcome!
