YA Book Club at Madison

Madison's YA Book Group will be meeting this Thursday, March 20th, 2014, at 5:00 in the YA room at the Madison Library. We will be discussing Marissa Meyer's Cinder, a futuristic retelling of Cinderella, involving androids, cyborgs, lunar aliens, and of course, a ball. Come discuss the timeless fairy tale set in a seemingly too fantastical setting.

Madison's YA Book Group meets every third Thursday in the YA room at 5:00pm. April's book will be The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly.
