Gen YA is the book group for the any generation, any gender reader, who likes to read YA (Young Adult).

We meet the 3rd Saturday of every month at 2:00pm in DG.



For April, our title will be: Akata Witch, by Nnedi Okorafor.

Akata Witch transports the reader to a magical place where nothing is quite as it seems. Born in New York, but living in Nigeria, twelve-year old Sunny is albino and thus, incredibly sensitive to the sun. All Sunny wants to do is be able to play football and get through another day of school without being bullied. But once she befriends Orlu and Chichi, Sunny is plunged in to the world of the Leopard People, where your worst defect becomes your greatest asset. 


This event is free and open to the public. Feel free to drop in and discuss this novel with this monthly group. Book may be purchased at the link below for your convenience.
