Event Description

Love young adult literature, even though you may not be a teen any longer? This book club is open to all YA lovers, both teens and adults!

This month, we are reading Last Night at the Telegraph Club by Malinda Lo, winner of the 2021 National Book Award for Young People's Literature.

"That book. It was about two women, and they fell in love with each other. Have you ever heard of such a thing?" Seventeen-year-old Lily Hu can't remember exactly when the question took root, but the answer was in full bloom the moment she and Kathleen Miller walked under the flashing neon sign of a lesbian bar called the Telegraph Club. America in 1954 is not a safe place for two girls to fall in love, especially not in Chinatown. Red-Scare paranoia threatens everyone, including Chinese Americans like Lily. With deportation looming over her father--despite his hard-won citizenship--Lily and Kath risk everything to let their love see the light of day.
