Morristown & Morris Township Library TEENBOOKBLOG http://www.jfpl.org Morristown & Morris Township Library TEENBOOKBLOG RSS Feed Tue, 31 May 2016 23:47:47 GMT Summer Book Clubs are Almost Here! http://www.jfpl.org/teens/polBlogs.cfm?doc_id=40892 This summer we are opening our 7th-9th grade book club session up to an additional 5 participants. Unfortunately, due to budgetary restraints we are unable to purchase any additional copies of the books. As a result, free copies to keep will be reserved for teens in attendance at the time books are initially passed out (with the exception of books for the first week, which is based on sign-up). Any teens unable to attend a book club session may pick up and check out a library copy of the book in advance and are able to swap that copy if there are any unclaimed copies to keep after the distribution date.<h1>Sign ups begin on Tuesday, May 31st. &nbsp;</h1> <p><strong><u>Book Club for Grades 7-9*</u></strong></p> <p><em>Tuesdays @ 7:00 PM, from 7/12-8/9</em></p> <p><em>-OR-</em></p> <p><em>Thursdays @ 4:00 PM, from 7/14-8/11</em></p> <ul> <li><strong>The Young Elites</strong> by Marie Lu</li> <li><strong>Lois Lane: Fallout</strong> by Gwenda Bond</li> <li><strong>A Monster Calls</strong> by Patrick Ness</li> <li><strong>The Schwa Was Here </strong>by Neal Shusterman</li> <li><strong>Princess of Thorns</strong> by Stacey Jay</li> </ul> <p><strong><u>Book Club for Grades 10-12*</u></strong></p> <p><em>Mondays @ 7:00 PM, from 7/11-8/8</em></p> <ul> <li><strong>I&#39;ll Give You the Sun</strong> by Jandy Nelson</li> <li><strong>Darker Shade of Magic</strong> by V.E.
