Teen Book Club: "The Poet X" by Elizabeth Acevedo

Teen Book Club: "The Poet X" by Elizabeth Acevedo

Teens Teens are invited to take part in a lively discussion of a wide range of books!

In March, the group will discuss Elizabeth Acevedo's novel about Xiomara Batista, who feels unheard and unable to hide in her Harlem neighborhood and usually lets her fists and fierceness do her talking. But there's plenty she wants to say, and she pours all her frustration and passion onto the pages of a leather notebook, reciting the words to herself like prayer. The Poet X is stunning account of a teen girl's path to poetry.

No registration is required and new people are always welcome!
