YA Lit Lovers Book Group
Meets at 7:00 PM at the Farmington Library the 2nd Tuesday of each month.
Are you a little less Y and a little more A, but can’t get enough of YA books? It’s ok, no really, it’s okay. This book group is for you! Funny, heart-wrenching, time-traveling, world-bending, stereotype shattering YA books have been making a mark on society for decades and it’s time for us adults who love them to stop hiding in the shadows. Led by Laura Horn, Library Director & Anna Boisvert, Teen Library Assistant.
