PCLS YA Book Club

Exciting news from the PCLS Teen Writers Group! We will be hosting a YA book club on the final Tuesday of each month!  Our next book club meeting will be Tuesday, September 27th at 4:00 p.m. in Heritage Hall.  Our selection for discussion this month we will be reading a book of choice.  This is a great way to learn about new authors or genres that wouldn’t typically be first choice.  We all get in a comfort zone and sometimes need to be drawn out and try something new.  We hope to see you there! For more information on the YA Book Club contact Elizabeth at 968-4368 or email
