Meet the Club Behind the Media Profile

truth.jpgI appreciated seeing that the River City Books young adult book club was featured in an exclusive story published in a recent edition of the Northfield News. Unfortunately, there is no public link to the story. But the good news is that if you want to know anything more about the club there is an excellent chance in the very near future.

The club will meet at 7 p.m., Monday, Jan. 15, in the store’s downstairs meeting area to discuss The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen, which is available in paperback, in stock at River City and on sale at a discount to participants. The club, which is free and open to the public, welcomes new members.

“The Truth About Forever,” a hot book among teen readers, will be a great book to discuss. It is the story of Macy’s summer, which stretches before her, carefully planned and outlined. She will spend her days sitting at the library information desk. She will spend her evenings studying for the SATs. Spare time will be used to help her obsessive mother prepare for the big opening of the townhouse section of her luxury development.

But Macy’s plans don’t anticipate a surprising and chaotic job with Wish Catering, a motley crew of new friends, or … Wes. Tattooed, artistic, anything-but-expected Wes. He doesn’t fit Macy’s life at all — so why does she feel so comfortable with him? So … happy? What is it about him that makes her let down her guard and finally talk about how much she misses her father, who died before he eyes the year before? Author Sarah Dessen delivers a page-turning novel that carries readers on a roller coaster of denial, grief, comfort, and love as we watch a broken but resilient girl pick up the pieces of her life and fit them back together.

For more information about the River City young adult book club, contact moderator and River City bookseller Katie Goetz at 507-646-7754. Or, better yet, just show up on Monday night.
