Adults Discuss YA Books: Genuine Fraud

Monday, April 16, 7 pm, Chicago Ave/Main St Branchbook cover

“Young adult literature typically centers on teenagers. But while the publishing industry markets these books primarily to young adults, that’s not always who reads them. Approximately 55 percent of today’s YA readers are adults. (Caroline Kitchener, Publishers Weekly) Is it nostalgia, escapism, the writing, or the narrative?” Or is it just that the quality of the writing in YA literature?  As  Georgina Howeltt (BritishBiblioholic)  says “adults are just people too, and we are entitled to read and like YA as much as anyone!”

Join Anya and Madeline for a discussion of Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart. From the author of the unforgettable New York Times bestseller We Were Liars comes a masterful new psychological suspense novel – the story of a young woman whose diabolical smarts are her ticket into a charmed life. But how many times can someone reinvent themselves? You be the judge. (

Copies of the book are available for checkout at the Chicago Ave/Main St Branch for those who will be attending the discussion.
