The Teen Book Club

Our mission: To read and discuss teen books. We are a very informal group of young people who thoroughly enjoy reading books for young adults.

We meet on the last Sunday of every month!

Call or stop in for more details! Next Meeting: Sunday, July 27th @ 2:00pm

Discussing: The Strange And Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavander by Leslye Walton Description:

Magical realism, lyrical prose, and the pain and passion of human love haunt this hypnotic generational saga. Foolish love appears to be the Roux family birthright, an ominous forecast for its most recent progeny, Ava Lavender. Ava — in all other ways a normal girl — is born with the wings of a bird. In a quest to understand her peculiar disposition and a growing desire to fit in with her peers, sixteen-year old Ava ventures into the wider world, ill-prepared for what she might discover and naive to the twisted motives of others. Others like the pious Nathaniel Sorrows, who mistakes Ava for an angel and whose obsession with her grows until the night of the summer solstice celebration. That night, the skies open up, rain and feathers fill the air, and Ava’s quest and her family’s saga build to a devastating crescendo. First-time author Leslye Walton has constructed a layered and unforgettable mythology of what it means to be born with hearts that are tragically, exquisitely human.

Over the course of the week, in five morning sessions, children will: Use professional-grade canvases and acrylic paints to create back-paintings and final pieces. Learn to translate poetry and fiction into artistic works Be introduced to the major schools of painting. Have the opportunity to write original poems and to paint some of their favorite literary characters. Session 1—July 7-11, 9:30 am—12:00 pm Session 2—August 4-9, 9:30 am—12:00 pm Each child will leave class with four original canvases for display.

Next Meeting: Thursday, August 7th @ 6:30pm

Discussing: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Phillip K. Dick Book Description:

THE INSPIRATION FOR Bladerunner. . .

Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep? was published in 1968. Grim and foreboding, even today it is a masterpiece ahead of its time.

By 2021, the World War had killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remained coveted any living creature, and for people who couldn't afford one, companies built incredibly realistic simulacrae: horses, birds, cats, sheep. . . They even built humans.

Emigrées to Mars received androids so sophisticated it was impossible to tell them from true men or women. Fearful of the havoc these artificial humans could wreak, the government banned them from Earth. But when androids didn't want to be identified, they just blended in.

Rick Deckard was an officially sanctioned bounty hunter whose job was to find rogue androids, and to retire them. But cornered, androids tended to fight back, with deadly results.

Middle School: Save Rafe

Saturday, August 9th @ 11:00 am The fun begins at 11:00 AM More details to come... James Patterson's hilarious story of perseverance and courage shows everyone's favorite troublemaker, Rafe Khatchadorian, the star of the Middle School series, learning to become a leader at long last. After a rough summer, Rafe is heading back to the dreaded Hills Village Middle School, the site of the very worst years of his life. And as if that's not bad enough, he's learned that he's going to be held back a year unless he can prove himself on an outdoor survival excursion--complete with dangerous white-water rafting, dizzying rock climbing, and fanatical counselors. Rafe and the rest of the pack of "delinquent" trainees are forced to cooperate as they prepare for the final test: a solo excursion in the deep woods. Can Rafe come out of the experience in one piece? And if he does, he go home as the same insecure kid? All our in-store events are free and open to the public.

Book Signing w/Toni McCloe (Saturday, August 9 at 2pm)
Book Signing with Author Toni McCloe Saturday, August 9th @ 2:00pm

My mother kept secrets. “Don’t ever let your left hand know what you’re your right hand is doing,” she would tell me when I was little. And I would watch her then as she plunged her hands into warm, soapy water or use them to stretch pizza or pasta dough for dinner, all the while wondering how one of her hands could not possibly know what the other was doing. But my mother knew. Her deepest secret—the one concerning my grandmother’s death—was the one she kept for more than seventy years.

Thus begins Rude Awakening, a story about growing up and growing old as it moves from the end of World War II to the post 9/11 world of today.

Nearing the end of a relationship, Toni finds herself left with an avalanche of feelings—feelings like abandonment, loneliness, and loss. Confused about relationships and desperate to heal a heart that is breaking, she turns to a therapist to help her wade through the debris.

Food for Thought: A Book Club with the Doylestown Food Co-Op

Tuesday, August 12th @ 6:15 PM July's book selection, Diet for a Hot Planet: Nearly four decades after her mother, Frances Moore Lappé, published Diet for a Small Planet, sparking a revolution in our thinking about the social and environmental impact of our food choices, Anna Lappé picks up the conversation, examining another hidden cost of our food system: the climate crisis. From raising cattle in industrial-scale feedlots to razing rainforests to make palm oil for Pop-Tarts, the choices we make about how we put food on our plates, and what we do with the waste, contribute to as much as one third of total greenhouse-gas emissions. Lappé exposes the interests resisting this crucial conversation while she educates and empowers readers and eaters committed to healing the planet. Digg Facebook Google Technorati del.icio.us

The Great Abraham Lincoln Pocket Watch Conspiracy - Signing w/Jacopo Della Quercia (Friday, August 15 at 5pm)
The Great Abraham Lincoln Pocket Watch Conspiracy Book Signing with Jacopo Della Quercia August 15th @ 5:00 pm

This historical thriller is an equal-parts cocktail of action, adventure, science-fiction and comedy. The book follows a globe-trotting President Taft and Robert Todd Lincoln in a race to solve a mystery stretching back to the Civil War and the Lincoln assassination. Based on true events, readers will find themselves swept into a vast conspiracy spanning four continents and three oceans during the turn of the century. Fascinating technologies will be harnessed, dark secrets revealed, true villains exposed, and some of the most famous figures in history will take the stage. With surprises lurking around every corner, and a vast cast of characters to root for, Jacopo della Quercia's The Great Abraham Lincoln Pocket Watch Conspiracy is a heart-pounding adventure that only history could have made possible. Praise for The Great Abraham Lincoln Pocket Watch Conspiracy… "Jacopo is an insight machine. His mind contains museums of fascinating history, and his writing never fails to change the way you look at the world around you.” —Jack O'Brien, Founder, Editor in Chief and General Manager of Cracked.com, “High concept and high adventure collide in a dizzying and thoroughly riveting adventure. Insanely entertaining.” --Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of CODE ZERO "A cleverly composed and daring steampunk adventure." —G.D. Falksen, author and historian “Amazing…. skillfully weaves together one of the best reads of the year as he combines “real” history with his vivid and somewhat off-beat imagination. I know of no one else who has merged Martians, speeding blimps, comets, mysterious pocket watches, accurate historical references and international intrigue into one awesome and unique read! Believe it or Not!” —Tim O’Brien, VP Communications, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! “With the sweep and scope of a Jules Verne adventure, The Great Abraham Lincoln Pocket Watch Conspiracy not only charts its own fantastic course through a dizzying alternate history of the United States presidency—it takes on literary history itself, turning anachronism into action, politics into pop, and a handful of America’s Commanders-in-Chief into the stuff of potent yet poignantly humanized myth. If you think Honest Abe and his brethren have been resurrected to death (so to speak), think again; Jacopo della Quercia has brought the speculative presidential yarn to another level.” —Jason Heller, Hugo Award-Winning author of Taft 2012 About the Author JACOPO DELLA QUERCIA is an educator and history writer who has authored more than 100 articles for the comedy website Cracked.com. His work has been featured in the New York Times bestseller You Might Be a Zombie and Other Bad News, BBC America, CNN Money, The Huffington Post, "The Takeaway" public radio program, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!, Playboy’s The Smoking Jacket, CBS’s Man Cave Daily, Georgetown University professor John Brown’s Public Diplomacy Press and Blog Review, among others.
