Young at Heart Book Club has arrived!! We hope you’re as excited as we are to talk about some fun, nostalgic reads. Our individual book discussion posts are now live:
- Judy Blume’s Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing
- Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
- Claribel Ortega’s Ghost Squad
We’ll meet up to chat on Zoom on tomorrow evening, Sat. May 22, 2021 7 pm EDT, . (Sign up for the CBR newsletter “Cannon Fodder” to get Zoom details.)
You can also comment below on some of the broader topics:
- Let’s talk expectations: If this was a re-read, did your opinion about the book change? If it was a new read, did your reading experience match what you anticipated?
- Who is the real target audience for The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy? The humor?
- Stress is a constant theme in Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, how did it affect your reading experience or ability to relate to the characters?
- Is there anything that makes Ghost Squad a distinctly 21st century novel?
I’ll see you soon!
