Young Adult Blind Date with a Book

Blind Date with a Book for YA! Our Blind Date with a Book program for adults and young adults has been hugely popular for the past few years, and this year promises to be another big hit!. Let us set you or your YA Valentine up on a Blind Date with a Book! Our YA Department staff picked out books we adore, wrapped them up to hide their identity, and gave short descriptions to entice you. You can’t unwrap a book until you’ve taken the plunge and purchased it, but you CAN rest assured that all of these books have been thoroughly vetted—and come with our heartfelt recommendations.
