IT’S LIT (TEEN BOOK CLUB) – Thursday, March 15

Teen Book Club is not for the faint of heart! Lots of these books are on college prep reading lists and have pretty challenging content. If you’re not sure if a book is for you, do some research or contact Hannah.


Stop by to talk about the best book you’ve read lately, and figure out what to read next!
