The February YA Not book club was a great time!  Our meeting was held at the Cafe at Barnes and Noble on University in WDM.  In honor of Valentine’s Day, and to tackle the challenge of discussing two books at once, the group participated in Speed Dating with Books.  One person who read Beauty Queens was paired with someone who read Every Day.  Each pair took turns discussing their respective books within a 5 minute “date” time frame.  There are a few pictures from the meeting below – it looks like everyone had fun!

What is YA Not?  It is a book club for grown-ups who like to read and talk about young adult books.  We don’t take ourselves too seriously, we like to laugh and have fun, and we like to talk…a lot.   So ‘YA Not’ join us for our next meeting to see what it’s all about?
