"Turtles All the Way Down" at Scarsdale Public Library (-)

Not Your Kids Book Club for Adults to Discuss "Turtles All the Way Down"

Not Your Kids Book Club for Adults, the monthly session for adults interested in what young adults are reading, will discuss the best-selling "Turtles All the Way Down" by John Green on Wednesday, Jan. 17, at 1 p.m., at the Scarsdale Public Library.
The highly-praised novel features Aza, 16, who pursues the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett with her best and most fearless friend for a $100,000 reward. Together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Pickett's son as Aza tries to be a good daughter, friend, student, and maybe even a good detective, while living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.
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 on Feb. 14 to discuss "Akata Witch" by Nnedi Okorafor.
