Young Adult Cross/Over Book Club ON HIATUS

Meeting Date:  Third Saturday of each month.

Time:  2:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Place:   Starry Night Room

Leader:  Melissa Robbins

The Young Adult Cross/Over Book Club reads books marketed to young adults but perfect for any reader.  It is open to 8th graders and up who want to read and discuss some of the best books written for teenagers.  But adults are definitely welcome!  We will read across genres--contemporary, romance, speculative fiction, graphic novels, and the occasional "adult" book--and discuss them on the third Saturday of every month from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m.  Melissa Robbins, an adult mystery and young adult writer who is a member of SCBWI and Sisters in Crime, is the leader.  She has two teenagers and one tween who love YA as much as she does!

A Short Introduction to Young Adult Cross/Over Book Club: 

How would you describe your book club to a prospective member?  We read any and all Young Adult literature.  Some of the best authors are currently writing in this genre.  YA Cross/Over Book Club is for all ages; in fact, we strongly encourage adults to participate.  We're loud and excited about YA books!
