The second meeting of the BHPL Teen Book Club was a super success!!! We enjoyed werewolf themed snacks, discussed killing your protege and had a few laughs while analyzing the book “Hold me Closer Necromancer” by Lish McBride.

Make sure to join us at our next meeting on Wednesday February 20th!  We will be discussing “The Rules of Survival” by Nancy Werlin!
