YA Crossover / New Adult Book Club

YAAre you a fan of YA Crossovers?  YA or Young Adult Crossovers are books that are popular amongst both teenagers and adults.  These are books like The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, Divergent by Veronica Roth, and The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.

What about New Adult Books?  Do you like those too?  New Adult is a fairly new genre that features characters between 18 and 25.  These books include Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire, Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, Hopeless by Colleen Hoover, and Easy by Tammara Webber.

The Winona Public Library is hosting a new book club for these genres at the Bookshelf/Blue Heron every first Monday of the Month (throughout the summer) at 5PM.  The next meeting will be Monday, August 4th.  The book club selection: Sixteen-year-old Thomas wakes up with no memory in the middle of a maze and realizes he must work with the community in which he finds himself if he is to escape.  At least, that is what happens in the book, soon-to-be movie, The Maze Runner by James Dashner.

All age groups teen, college level, or over are invited to attend.  Bring your YA Crossover or New Adult Book of Choice.
