YA Discussion Group is currently on hiatus.
We know. We're bummed out about it, too. Sorry for the inconvenience!
Are you a young adult who likes books? Let's talk! We want to bring back YADG soon, and better than ever. Please email Timothy at firstname.lastname@example.org to express your interest.
The YA Discussion Group is a book club for young adult readers. (We see you, adults who read YA, but this one's for the youth.) Meetings have primarily been virtual, but we will revisit in-person meetings in the future.
See below for some of the titles we've discussed in the past.
