Program Description

Event Details

A YA book discussion group for those of us who are a little less Y and a little more A. This month we will be discussing In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters. The ebook is available on hoopla.

In 1918, the world seems on the verge of apocalypse. Americans roam the streets in gauze masks to ward off the deadly Spanish influenza, and the government ships young men to the front lines of a brutal war, creating an atmosphere of fear and confusion. Sixteen-year-old Mary Shelley Black watches as desperate mourners flock to séances and spirit photographers for comfort, but she herself has never believed in ghosts. During her bleakest moment, however, she's forced to rethink her entire way of looking at life and death, for her first love-a boy who died in battle-returns in spirit form. But what does he want from her?
