Program Description

About this event:

YA Book Club is hybrid this year! Join us each month to discuss a book we've all read, either on Zoom or at TCPL! Participants will receive a free copy of each month's book to keep.

Registration is required. All participants will receive the Zoom link after registration and may choose whether to join us in person (masks and social distancing required) or virtually. 

This month we will be discussing Scythe by Neal Shusterman.

Thou shalt kill.

A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery. Humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now scythes are the only ones who can end life—and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control.

Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe—a role that neither wants. These teens must master the “art” of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.
