misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:15 PM Young Adult Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book Club   Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    For teens ages 10+ and their parents.

Do you enjoy YA science fiction and fantasy? Do you like talking about what you read? Join us each month as we discuss a different great YA sci-fi/fantasy book!

This month’s award-winning book is Etiquette & Espionage (Book 1) by Gail Carriger (2013). Set in an alternative Victorian England, this paranormal steampunk story follows Sophronia on her finishing school adventures - the school being on a floating airship and her classes including "the fine arts of death, diversion, and the modern weaponries!" While all ages are welcome to attend, Kirkus Reviews suggests that Carriger’s novel is most appropriate for readers 11 years and older.

The book club will be held in the Children’s Activity Room. It is open to teens and their parents, though teens may also come on their own.

Online registration is required.

Presenters are Jessi Cole Jackson, Jean Graham, and Karen LeMorvan. Jessi Cole Jackson is currently studying for an MFA in children's literature at Hollins University. She has published short stories in Crossed Genres Magazine, InterGalactic Medicine Show, and in the MG/YA anthology 2016 Young Explorer's Adventure Guide, among others. In addition to her work at Hollins University, she has taken workshops with Orson Scott Card and Mary Robinette Kowal.

Jean Graham is Professor of English at TCNJ and one of the teachers of TCNJ's young adult literature course. She is currently interim coordinator of English Secondary Education, and sometime supervisor of student teachers.
