Our very own bookseller Amy Rebecca Tan will be here to discuss her book, A Kind of Paradise, with both our Teen and Tween book clubs in a special joint session! It's a unique opportunity for our youth readers (and even aspiring young writers!) to read a great book, then chat directly with the author about her book, her writing process, and how a book goes from an idea to being published by a major national publisher. Snacks and activities included!
About the book: Thirteen-year-old Jamie Bunn made a mistake at the end of the school year. A big one. And every kid in her middle school knows all about it. Now she has to spend her summer vacation volunteering at the local library—as punishment. What a waste of a summer!
Or so she thinks.
A Kind of Paradise is an unforgettable story about the power of community, the power of the library, and the power of forgiveness.
