Greetings Book Clubbers! (And anyone else out there interested in a teen book club!)
September is just around the corner and dare I remind you that means it’s time for all things back-to-school. New pencils. New backpacks. New clothes. New books. But while you’re diving back into academia, don’t forget to make time for reading just for the fun of it and come out to book club. Non-school books still need love too! And I have the perfect book: Gilt by Katherine Longshore (Viking Children’s Books).
Go back in time to the scandalous court of King Henry VIII in Longshore’s debut novel. Here’s a look at our September club pick:
When Kitty Tylney’s best friend, Catherine Howard, worms her way into King Henry VIII’s heart and brings Kitty to court, she’s thrust into a world filled with fabulous gowns, sparkling jewels, and elegant parties. No longer stuck in Cat’s shadow, Kitty’s now caught between two men—the object of her affection and the object of her desire. But court is also full of secrets, lies, and sordid affairs, and as Kitty witnesses Cat’s meteoric rise and fall as queen, she must figure out how to keep being a good friend when the price of telling the truth could literally be her head.
Our next meeting is Wednesday, September 26th at 7:00pm at Chapters, Guelph. Hope to see you there!
