Simon Snow just wants to relax and savor his last year at the Watford School of Magicks, but no one will let him. His girlfriend broke up with him, his best friend is a pest, and his mentor keeps trying to hide him away in the mountains where maybe he'll be safe.
Young Adult Literature Community Book Group w/ facilitator Nancy Litvak
Bookshop Santa Cruz is excited to announce the launch of a new Community Book Group series, focusing on young adult literature.
Are you a parent or grandparent who is curious about why the teen in your life is drawn to reading one title over another? Do you want to understand more about what’s so interesting in the book your child won’t stop talking about? Are you yourself a fan and reader of young adult literature? Then we invite you to take part in our monthly reading group dedicated to young adult literature (literature broadly aimed at readers who are 12 and older).
This group will be facilitated by Nancy Litvak (newly retired librarian from Harbor High School) and meet on the second Wednesday of every month. The first reading selection for the group is Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games--a book that delivers equal parts suspense and philosophy, adventure and romance. A stunning novel set in a future, there is an unsettling parallel to the present.
Please join us on February 9th for the first meeting in our Young Adult Community Book Group.
The Hunger Games will be discounted at 10% off its cover price through the February 9th meeting date.
P.S. There will be snacks and tea!
