Five “youthful adults” gathered at the Lopez Bookshop in October for the first meeting of The Lopez Youth Book Group (official name yet to be determined!). They talked about The Giver, a Newbery-award winning science fiction novel by Lois Lowry. In December, they discussed Code Name Verity, by Elizabeth Wein (teen historical fiction) and selected titles for the next two months (group usually meets the 4th Tuesday of each month). Adults and youth who love middle-grade and teen fiction are welcome.
January 27: Diamond Willow, by Helen Frost (middle-grade realistic fiction)
February 24: The Graveyard Book, by Neil Gaiman (teen fantasy)
