Book Club

young adult cancer book club

Looking to read a good book (cancer or not cancer related) and connect with other young adult cancer survivors and caregivers at the same time?  At the Young Adult Cancer Book Club, together we choose a book.  Cactus Cancer Society (formerly Lacuna Loft) sends books (sometimes the books are even autographed by the author!) to survivors and caregivers who request them (free of charge to the young adult).  Each week, a new chapter is discussed on the Young Adult Voices portion of the site and at the end of the book, we host a book club discussion via video hangout.

(Cactus Cancer Society considers anyone diagnosed with cancer, at any stage of the experience, to be a survivor!)


Round 13 is underway.  Go here to catch up on the participant reactions!  In exchange for writing a paragraph of commentary on an assigned group of chapters participants received a free copy of Between Two Kingdoms by Suleika Jaouad

Interested in sharing your book with another young adult cancer patient, survivor, or caregiver once you’re done reading?  Interested in reading a book from the young adult cancer book club that you missed?  Click on the ‘Young Adult Cancer Library’ banner below to learn how you can!

Click here to sign up to be alerted when we vote on the next book or announce the discussion date by choosing ‘Book Club’ under ‘Programs you’re interested in.’ (Feel free to choose to be notified when other programs are announced too!)
