Even though Yong Adult literature is typically about teenage characters dealing with young adult issues, adults now represent a higher percentage of the readership than ever before, accounting for 55 percent, according to Publishers Weekly (2012, Sept. 13. New Study: 55% of YA Books Bought by Adults. PublishersWeekly.com. http://www.publishersweekly.com).

So if you are part of that 55 percent or have a favorite YA novel that you just want to talk about, this group is for you! Stop by the library to sign up and check out a copy of this month’s book: Being Henry David, by Cal Armistead. Synopsis: Seventeen-year-old “Hank”, who can’t remember his identity, finds himself in Penn Station with a copy of Thoreau’s Walden as his only possession and must figure out where he’s from and why he ran away.
For more information, please contact Heidi Fowler, Reference Librarian at 508-839-4649 ext. 1102 or graftonlibrary.ma@gmail.com.
