Young Adult Book Club
Saturday, February 3rd, 11AM
Join us for our YA Book club — for Young Adults (grades 8-12th) led by Young Adults. We will be discussing Tell It True by Tim Lockette. The heroine of this compelling book is Lisa, a cynical high school outsider who finds herself in charge of her school newspaper. Wanting to be a “real” journalist, Lisa covers the execution of a local man charged with murder, and in doing so, she experiences the consequences of “speaking the truth in a world of denial, spin, and fake news.” Couldn’t imagine a better book to read and discuss!
