Great Beginnings YA Bookclub for Adults
We'll be discussing A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle.
A graphic novel adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's ground-breaking science fiction and fantasy classic, soon to be a major motion picture.
The world already knows Meg and Charles Wallace Murry, Calvin O'Keefe, and the three Mrs--Who, Whatsit, and Which--the memorable and wonderful characters who fight off a dark force and save our universe in the Newbery Award-winning classic A Wrinkle in Time. But in 50 years of publication, the book has never been illustrated. Now, Hope Larson takes the classic story to a new level with her vividly imagined interpretations of tessering and favorite characters, like the Happy Medium and Aunt Beast. Perfect for delighting old fans and winning over new ones, this graphic novel adaptation is a must-read.
Great Beginnings YA Bookclub for adult readers is led by YA author Parker Peevyhouse. We will meet the second Thursday of every month at 7:00 pm at Hicklebee's Bookstore to discuss our featured book. Great Beginners will receive a 20% discount on titles chosen for discussion.
Parker Peevyhouse writes fiction about teens in unusual situations. She lives with her family in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she works at a junior/senior high school and volunteers with teens. She can usually be found wandering local trails, playing board games, or watching science fiction movies. Her first novel, WHERE FUTURES END (Penguin/Dawson, February 2016), which Kirkus called *"strange and compelling," has been featured on such websites as EntertainmentWeekly.com, Barnes and Noble Teen Blog, io9.com, and in Glitter Magazine.
