New Reading Group!

Youth Connect and The Penguin Bookshop partner to present a new book club! Teen Reads for Adults will meet at 9:30AM Tuesday, February 16th at Penguin Bookshop, 420 Beaver Street in Sewickley.

Teen Reads for Adults is a book club for adults and parents where Young Adult books will be discussed. The book selected for discussion will be a current book written for teens and will explore serious issues related to modern teen life. The purpose of this book club is to provide an opportunity for adults to discuss a teen book with other adults, including school counselors and a teen librarian.

The first book we will be discussing is Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson:

Eighteen-year-old Lia comes to terms
with her best friend's death from anorexia
as she struggles with the same disorder.
