(Virtual) Forever Young Adult Book Club

Enjoy Young Adult books? Join the Forever Young Adult Book Club for adults ages 18+, run by the Flint's YA Librarian Nicole Dow. There we will pick a monthly YA novel to read and discuss at the second to last Saturday of the month.

Our first meeting will be on Saturday, October 24 beginning at 8:00PM on Zoom. 

This month's title: The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw.

About the book:

Hocus Pocus and Practical Magic meets the Salem Witch trials in this haunting story about three sisters on a quest for revenge—and how love may be the only thing powerful enough to stop them.

Welcome to the cursed town of Sparrow…

Where, two centuries ago, three sisters were sentenced to death for witchery. Stones were tied to their ankles and they were drowned in the deep waters surrounding the town.

Now, for a brief time each summer, the sisters return, stealing the bodies of three weak-hearted girls so that they may seek their revenge, luring boys into the harbor and pulling them under.

Like many locals, seventeen-year-old Penny Talbot has accepted the fate of the town. But this year, on the eve of the sisters’ return, a boy named Bo Carter arrives; unaware of the danger he has just stumbled into.

Mistrust and lies spread quickly through the salty, rain-soaked streets. The townspeople turn against one another. Penny and Bo suspect each other of hiding secrets. And death comes swiftly to those who cannot resist the call of the sisters.


But only Penny sees what others cannot. And she will be forced to choose: save Bo, or save herself." (via Amazon)

While we are all sharing this collective experience, we are still able to participate in programs alone but together during these trying times! Check out our calendars and social media to participate in a taiji qigong session from home as we share a link to a guided lesson each week.

This month's virtual lesson: 9-minute Daily Practice of Easy Tai Chi with Don Fiore [Click here for the link!]

The Flint Public Library will offer in-person Taiji Qigong classes at the Flint outside on the lawn by the Historical Society, weather permitting. Larry Greenberg will be leading the class. We ask that people wear protective facial covering and practice social distancing during the class. If you have any questions please email Melissa Gaspar (mgaspar@flintpublib.org) or call the library (978.774.8132).

6:30 PM - 7:45 PM
(Virtual) Flint Library Book Club

Come and engage in lively discussions of wonderful books! The first fifteen minutes of our virtual meeting will be dedicated to socializing and getting to mingle, followed by an hour-long discussion of this month's book. We will typically meet on the first Thursday of every month, and new members are always welcome and encouraged to join. 

The book we will be discussing: City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert

About the book:

"New York, 1940. Young, glamorous and inseparable, Vivian and Celia are chasing trouble from one end of the city to the other. But there is risk in all this play – that's what makes it so fun, and so dangerous. Sometimes, the world may feel like it's ending, but for Vivian and Celia, life is just beginning.

City of Girls is about daring to break conventions and follow your desires: a celebration of glamour, resilience, growing up, and the joys of female friendship – and about the freedom that comes from finding a place you truly belong." (via Amazon)

Registration: Email Kelly Potter at kpotter@flintpublib.org to receive the invitation to this Zoom meeting.

Age Group(s): Adults
