There will be afternoon groups that meet at the Aurora Public Library on July 28th @ 1:00pm and at the Dillsboro Public Library on July 29th @ 1:00pm. Both will be discussing Other People’s Children by Jeff Hoffman.

Other People’s Children has been described as an “engrossing debut” novel (Laura Dave, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Thing He Told Me) about a couple whose dreams of adoption push them to do the unthinkable when their baby’s birth family steps into the picture.

Calling all young adults! Stuck Between the Pages will return in February, and we need you!
Do you like to read? Do you like to discuss what you read with others who like to read? Are you ready to make new friends from all over? Do you like snacks? (Because we always have snacks.) We’re always looking for new members to join our group!
If you’re in high school or college and would like to join Stuck Between the Pages, just stop by the Aurora Public Library to sign up. Then you can pick up your copy of the book for the following month’s meeting at the upper level desk! February’s book will be Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. Stop by anytime after the first of the year to sign up and get your copy. Click here for a brief excerpt from Goodreads.
Meetings always take place the second Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m. in the teen area upstairs at the Aurora Public Library. Even if you haven’t read the book but are interested in joining, come to one of the meetings to see what it’s like. Meetings usually last about an hour to an hour and a half, depending on the discussion. (Did I mention we have snacks? Because we always have snacks.) The first meeting of 2019 will take place on Tuesday, February 12 at 6 p.m.
Join us on Thursday, February 7 at 6 p.m. for a viewing of the movie Me Before You, starring Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin. Even if you don’t have time to read the book, come to the movie and discussion to compare and contrast the movie and the book. (Once again, there will be snacks!)
If you still need convincing, be sure to talk to one of our staff members!
