The (Not So) Young Adult Book Club is for those adults who love reading YA books (you know who you are) but teens are totally welcome to join us too! This is a hybrid book club, so you can join us virtually over Zoom if you can't make it to the library to meet in person!
At this meeting, we'll be discussing Jackaby (published in 2014) by William Ritter copies will be available in September to check out at the library. If you're interested in YA books and participating in this book club, please come to the meeting even if you haven't read the book! We are open to interested readers of all genres of YA! Hope to see you there!
If you plan on attending in person, registration is suggested. Registration is required if you plan on participating virtually to receive the Zoom meeting information. *Please note that the main library will not be open during the book club meeting*
“Miss Rook, I am not an occultist,” Jackaby said. “I have a gift that allows me to see truth where others see the illusion--and there are many illusions. All the world’s a stage, as they say, and I seem to have the only seat in the house with a view behind the curtain.”
Newly arrived in New Fiddleham, New England, 1892, and in need of a job, Abigail Rook meets R. F. Jackaby, an investigator of the unexplained with a keen eye for the extraordinary--including the ability to see supernatural beings. Abigail has a gift for noticing ordinary but important details, which makes her perfect for the position of Jackaby’s assistant. On her first day, Abigail finds herself in the midst of a thrilling case: A serial killer is on the loose. The police are convinced it’s an ordinary villain, but Jackaby is certain it’s a nonhuman creature, whose existence the police--with the exception of a handsome young detective named Charlie Cane--deny.
Doctor Who meets Sherlock in William Ritter’s debut novel, which features a detective of the paranormal as seen through the eyes of his adventurous and intelligent assistant in a tale brimming with cheeky humor and a dose of the macabre.
