Teen Book Club: Books of the Young Author Giveback Tour

Thursday, May 16, 2013  
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

This month we'll be doing something a little different for book club.
On June 6, we'll have the chance to meet four newly published authors! For book club, we'll discuss the plot premises of each of the authors books and decide who might be our favorite. Since they are all new authors, maybe there will be a first time J.K. Rowlings in the group! Come say what you think.

Regular book club attendees will receive a free copy of their favorite book of the four!
