Not Your Kids Book Club for Adults To Discuss "Akata Witch"

Date: Wed. 14 Feb, 2018 1:00 pm

Not Your Kids Book Club for Adults, the monthly session for adults interested in what young adults are reading, will discuss Akata Witch" by Nnedi Okorafor on Wednesday, Feb. 14, at 1 p.m., at the Scarsdale Public Library.

The novel is the story of a twelve-year-old American Albino living in Nigeria who is a terrific athlete but can't play soccer in the sun. There seems to be no place where she fits in. However, she discovers something amazing—she is a "free agent" with latent magical power. Soon she's part of a quartet of magic students, studying the visible and invisible, learning to change reality as they are asked to catch a career criminal who also knows magic.

Not Your Kids Book Club for Adults is led by Scarsdale resident Sheela Chari, whose debut children's novel, VANISHED, was a 2012 APALA Children's Literature honor book, an Edgar Award nominee for best juvenile mystery and was featured on the Today show with Al's Book Club for Kids.

To register and reserve a copy of the book go to the library website, or call the Reference Desk at (914) 722-1302.

The group will meet again on March 14 to discuss "Jane Unlimited" by Kristen Cashore.
