Taft Teen Book Club


The Taft Teen Book Club (for ages 12 and up) will meet next on Thursday, May 18th at 5pm downstairs in the library to discuss Ryan Graudin’s Wolf by Wolf, a suspenseful tale set in an alternate world in which the Axis powers of the Third Reich and Imperial Japan won World War II.  Yael, a former death camp prisoner, will be participating in the Axis Tour, an annual motorcycle race to commemorate the Axis victory.  The winner of the race will get an audience with Adolph Hitler.  But Yael has a secret.  She is a member of the resistance and, as a member, she has been tasked with one mission: win the race and kill Hitler.


Those interested in the Wolf by Wolf discussion can register now and pick up copies of the book at either circulation desk.  We’ll have pizza and refreshments the night of the discussion.  Come join us!
