A Novel Idea: Teen Book Club
Attleboro Public Library, Friday, January 27 at 3:30pm
Youth age 13+ are welcome to join us for the teen book club! This month we will be discussing My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand.

The comical, fantastical, romantical, (not) entirely true story of Lady Jane Grey. In My Lady Jane, coauthors Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows have created a one-of-a-kind fantasy in the tradition of The Princess Bride, featuring a reluctant king, an even more reluctant queen, a noble steed, and only a passing resemblance to actual history—because sometimes history needs a little help.

Copies of the book will be available in the children's room at the end of December. Register here.

Teen Book Group
Cumberland Public Library, Saturday, January 28 at 2pm
The Cumberland Public Library Teen Book will meet Saturday 1/28 from 2 - 3 PM. We're reading The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron:
Nadia lives in the city of Canaan, where life is safe and structured, hemmed in by white stone walls and no memory of what came before. For every twelve years the city undergoes the Forgetting, a chaotic day of no remorse, when each person's memories -- of parents, children, love, life, and self -- are lost. If it were not for the books in which inhabitants are required by law to record the events of their lives, they would have no way of knowing what happened before the Forgetting, or even of knowing their names or who their families are. Nadia is different. She remembers everything, and she sees how people lie and erase truths in their books. The next Forgetting is just a few weeks away, and Nadia is determined to avoid its horrors and keep her family and their memories together. She may have help from the handsome Gray (if he can be trusted), but they will have to fight an unseen enemy that threatens both their city and their own existence.
Pick up a copy at the circulation desk (books should be available by Sunday 1/8). This program is for middle and high school students. Space is limited. For further information or to sign up, please contact the Teen Services at 333-2552 x6 or teens@cumberlandlibrary.org. (added from Eventkeeper)
