Young Adult Book Group with Micah
This Will Be Funny Someday by Katie Henry
Pizza provided!

Hosted by Greenlight bookseller Micah, the Young Adult Book Group is a space for the curious young reader interested in a curated, intentionally diverse and broad selection of books. While literature is of course at the core of this book group, cultivating our very own community and connections are also at the root of YABG, so if this sounds like a good time to you, come join the fun! Young Adult Book Group is geared toward readers ages 13+; parents are welcome (but not required) to attend.

For January's meeting,  the group will be discussing This Will Be Funny Someday by Katie Henry.  Sixteen-year-old Izzy is used to keeping her thoughts to herself—in school, where her boyfriend does the talking for her, and at home, where it’s impossible to compete with her older siblings and high-powered parents. When she mistakenly walks into a stand-up comedy club and performs, the experience is surprisingly cathartic. Now Izzy, the dutiful daughter and model student, is sneaking out to perform stand-up with her comedy friends. As her two parallel lives collide—in the most hilarious of ways—Izzy must choose to either hide what she really wants and who she really is, or finally, truly stand up for herself.
