Hey Teens in grades 6-12! Join us for our digital book clubs. All you need to do is create a free GoodReads account at goodreads.com and join the Orland Park Public Library Online Book Club & Chat group. In this group you’ll find a special spot for Teens to discuss our current read. Stop by any time! Yes we mean anytime! Today. Tomorrow. Two weeks from now. Anytime! When you stop by, let us know what you think of the book, add in your own questions, discuss your favorite or least favorite parts with others, and more. We even have different activities that you can try at home each month to go along with our reads! You can check out our book club reads from home on Hoopla in eBook and eAudiobook versions. You can also pick up physical books from the library!
See you at Teen Book Club!
December’s Book Choice: My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand
Edward is the King of England. He’s also dying, which is inconvenient, as he’s only sixteen and he’d rather be planning his first kiss than who will inherit his crown. Jane, Edward’s cousin, is far more interested in books than romance. Unfortunately, Edward has arranged to marry her off to Gifford secure the line of succession. And Gifford is, well, a horse. That is, he is an Eðian (eth-y-un, for the uninitiated) who becomes a chestnut steed every morning, but wakes as a man at dusk, with a mouthful of hay. Very undignified. The plot thickens as the three are drawn into a dangerous conspiracy, and have to engage in some conspiring of their own. But can they pull off their plan before it’s off with their heads?
