Book Club Update

stacked books

The young adult cancer book club has been moving slowly behind the scenes, getting ready for Round 8 to start.

Chosen by you, the next Book Club read is Kate Bowler’s book, Everything Happens For A Reason And Other Lies I’ve Loved.  I’m really excited to read this book altogether.  The books are now in the Lacuna Loft offices and are ready to be sent to those of you who signed up to receive one of the 24 free books in exchange for sharing your commentary on one of the book’s chapters.  I’m so happy to announce that the books will go out this week!  We actually went crazy this time and 32 of you are receiving a free book!

To give everyone a change to dig into the book, we’ll be sending out the books this week, they’ll arrive sometime in the next week (media mail takes a while sometimes…), and we’ll give you the month of July to start reading.   During July, we’ll send out chapter assignments to the 32 young adult cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers who received a free book.  Then, we’ll start sharing commentary in August!  I know that seems like forever away but August will arrive before you know it and this way, everyone has a chance to start reading.

Once this round of the young adult cancer book club officially starts, there are several ways for you to be involved in the book club:

  1. Read the book along with us and check out the Young Adult Voices blog each Monday, starting August 5th for the next book chapter’s installment!
  2. If you get behind, check out this page for all of the posts for Round 8 of the book club.
  3. If you’d like to contribute your comments about a chapter, email at least a few days ahead of the Monday when that chapter will be discussed, with your comments and a short bio of yourself.
