Wednesday, November 19 at 4pm

Teen Book Club meets on the third Wednesday of every month at 4pm. For our November book, we’re discussing A Corner of White by Jaclyn Moriarty. We’ll also vote on what book to read in December and one lucky book club member will win a free copy.


Madeleine Tully lives in Cambridge, England, the World – a city of spires, Isaac Newton and Auntie’s Tea Shop. Elliot Baranski lives in Bonfire, the Farms, the Kingdom of Cello – where seasons roam, the Butterfly Child sleeps in a glass jar, and bells warn of attacks from dangerous Colours. They are worlds apart – until a crack opens up between them; a corner of white – the slim seam of a letter. A mesmerizing story of two worlds; the cracks between them, the science that binds them and the colors that infuse them.

Following Teen Book Club, we will have a British tea party!
Please wear hats, boas, tiaras, or anything tea party-esque.
We will be serving tea, finger sandwiches, and dessert.
British accent optional!
