Calling All Young Adult Book Readers

castle.JPGI have multiple items to share that will be of particular interest to those of you who read young adult books (or live with someone who does). With bullets, for easy reading:

• The River City Books young adult book club is meeting at 7 p.m., Monday, March 12 in the store’s downstairs meeting area. The book to be read is I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. Club moderator Katie Goetz noted: “Coincidentally this book is by the author of 101 Dalmatians, but completely unrelated in subject … there’s not a dog in sight.” The club welcomes new members.

• The same young adult book club is reading Marilyn Sachs’ The Fat Girl for April.

• The young adult section is one of the most popular at RCB. And we’re not the only ones. I spotted this interesting article the other day. Some are calling this the golden age of young adult literature. Not hard to see why.

• Dozens have already pre-ordered their copy of Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows. You can, too. Stop by or call the store (507-646-7754). RCB is offering a 30-percent discount.
