Mallory visited the BBTF group today and brought a selection of Young Adult novels that the Library's "Forever Young" reading group has enjoyed. "Our book discussions are very engaging," said Mallory, "there is a connection the adult members have -- from their former childhood growing years to the parental roles they now face with their own children today." "Kill The Boy Band" focuses on teen age obsession; "Dumplin" takes on teen pageantry; "Bone Gap" is a gripping read of orphans in search of family; and “All American Boys” about two boys, one black and one white, and what it means to be a good person, across the lines of race and political polarity.
Mallory’s presentation reminded the BBTF group of YA books they have enjoyed in the past. Those titles, beginning with “Snow In August,” are listed as well, plus other more mature book titles (toward the end of the list) that the group members are currently reading now. Get ready, today’s meeting created a very long list of titles. Thank you Mallory for your insightful presentation. And, Min, thanks for the cookies. Delicious and festive!
Next week is our last meeting before the holiday break. Hope to see you there.
The book list begins now:
