Not Your Mother's Book Club

NYMBC presents a Launch Party w/SARA FARIZAN at Books Inc. in The Castro!

Share this

Not Your Mother’s Book Club™ celebrates the launch of 2014 Lambda Literary Award-winner (If You Could Be Mine) Sara Farizan's latest work, Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel.

Both personal and universal, this is a compelling story about high school, family and owning up to who you really are. Farizan is just the voice YA needs right now. Trust me, you'll be glad you listened. --Sarah Dessen

High-school junior Leila has made it most of the way through Armstead Academy without having a crush on anyone, which is something of a relief. Her Persian heritage already makes her different from her classmates; if word got out that she liked girls, life would be twice as hard. But when a sophisticated, beautiful new girl, Saskia, shows up, Leila starts to take risks she never thought she would, especially when it looks as if the attraction between them is mutual. Struggling to sort out her growing feelings and Saskia s confusing signals, Leila confides in her old friend, Lisa, and grows closer to her fellow drama tech-crew members, especially Tomas, whose comments about his own sexuality are frank, funny, wise, and sometimes painful. Gradually, Leila begins to see that almost all her classmates are more complicated than they first appear to be, and many are keeping fascinating secrets of their own.

NYM-Actual-Book Club presents special guest author Katherine Longshore to discuss the companion to Gilt and Tarnish, Brazen. Mary Howard has always lived in the shadow of her powerful family. But when she's married off to Henry Fitzroy, King Henry VIII's illegitimate son, she rockets into the Tudor court's inner circle. Mary and "Fitz" join a tight clique of rebels who test the boundaries of court's strict rules with their games, dares, and flirtations. The more Mary gets to know Fitz, the harder she falls for him, but is forbidden from seeing him alone. The rules of court were made to be pushed...but pushing them too far means certain death. Is true love worth dying for?

NYMBC Presents MAGGIE STIEFVATER at the Alameda Free Library

Share this

The Alameda Free Library and Not Your Mother's Book Club™ present Michael L. Printz-Honoree and #1 New York Times-bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater sharing book four in her Shiver series, Sinner.

Maggie’s new book, Sinner, is another in the Wolves of Mercy Falls universe, but is meant to be read as a stand-alone from the series. Following Cole St. Clair and Isabel Culpeper, this neon-pink, sun-kissed love story is impossibly hot. It seems to us at NYMBC that Maggie only gets better with each book she writes. Come kick it with her before she gets too fancy and famous to ever visit us again.
