The Lancaster Public Library, 125 N. Duke St., Lancaster, will launch a Young Adult Book Club on Wednesday, Nov. 29, at 6 p.m. Michael L. Printz Honor Book author A.S. King will attend the get-to-know-you meeting to discuss the power of books and book clubs. Pizza and snacks will be available.
King is the author of "Everbody Sees the Ants," a 2012 ALA Top Ten Book for Young Adults, and the Edgar Award-nominated 2011 Michael L. Printz Honor Book, "Please Ignore Vera Dietz." She is also the author of "The Dust of 100 Dogs" and "Ask the Passengers." After a decade living self-sufficiently and teaching literacy to adults in Ireland, she now lives deep in the Pennsylvania woods with her husband and children. More information about the library is available at http://www.lancasterpubliclibrary.org.
The Young Adult Book Club is a teen-centered book club for youths ages 12 to 18. Beginning in December, the group will meet every second and fourth Wednesday at 6 p.m. in the Clark Room, on the library's second floor. Participants will discuss the featured book and news in young adult literature. Participants are encouraged to bring reading suggestions for possible featured books for future meetings. The Young Adult Book Club will read "Still Life with Tornado" by A.S. King in December.
The program is free. Registration is available at http://lpl-youngadultbookclub.eventbrite.com. To learn more about the Young Adult Book Club at Lancaster Public Library, readers may contact Leigh Kaliss at 717-394-2651, ext. 101.
