Read the book of the month, then join the discussion.
Join us on the grass beside the library for Adults Who Read YA Book Club! Bring your own lawn chairs, bug spray, and tea/coffee/water.
In the event of inclement weather, the book club will move indoors. Face masks are encouraged for participation in programs, as we may not always be able to maintain physical distance.
For October's meeting, we will be discussing Internment, by Samira Ahmed. Place a hold or pick up a copy at the library.
"A story of hope and resistance aimed at young audiences, Internment gets at the heart of the terrifying state of our politics. Set in a horrifying “15 minutes in the future” United States, the book follows 17-year-old Layla Amin as she is forced into an internment camp for Muslim Americans along with her parents. With the help of newly made friends also trapped in the camp, her boyfriend on the outside, and an unexpected alliance, Layla begins a journey to fight for freedom, leading a revolution against the internment camp’s director and his guards. Internment questions the imaginary boundaries that separate us, and challenges readers to fight the complicit silence that exists in our society today." - https://samiraahmed.com/books/
