The Adults Who Read YA Book Club welcomes adults who enjoy reading without age-limits. Facilitated by retired librarian N. Gregg O'Brien and BPL adult services librarians.
Upcoming selections include:
- You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson
Liz Lighty has always believed she's too black, too poor, too awkward to shine in her small, rich, prom-obsessed midwestern town. But it's okay -- Liz has a plan that will get her out of Campbell, Indiana, forever: attend the uber-elite Pennington College, play in their world-famous orchestra, and become a doctor. But when the financial aid she was counting on unexpectedly falls through, Liz's plans come crashing down . . . until she's reminded of her school's scholarship for prom king and queen.
This group meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month from 7 to 8 pm on Zoom.
- Registration is required to receive the meeting's Zoom link.
