7:00-8:00 p.m.
Board Room

All teens and adults are welcome to this book discussion where we explore young adult literature. Lauren Rumi will moderate. Copies of the book are available at the Information Desk.

In June, we will be discussing Cinder by Marissa Meyer, book one in the Lunar Chronicles series and a Nutmeg Book Award nominee.

Sixteen-year-old Cinder is considered a burden to her stepmother and a technological mistake by most of society. But being a cyborg does have its benefits. Cinder’s brain interface has given her an uncanny ability to fix things making her the best mechanic in New Beijing. When Cinder’s younger stepsister, and only human friend, is infected with a fatal plague, her stepmother volunteers her body for plague research. It doesn’t take long for the scientists to discover something unusual about their new guinea pig. Something others would kill for.
