Young at Heart Book Club: Ghost by Jason Reynolds

Recapture the comfort, hope, and joy of your happiest childhood days spent reading. Join our brand-new book club for adults! We'll revisit old classics, find new favorites, and discover the unexpected, intellectual thrill of Children's Literature.

The Young at Heart Book Club will meet on the 4th Wednesday of every month at 6:30pm in the Presentation Commons at Queset House. This program is for adult patrons (18+).

This month's selection is: Ghost by Jason Reynolds

"Running. That's all that Ghost (real name Castle Cranshaw) has ever known. But never for a track team. Nope, his game has always been ball. But when Ghost impulsively challenges an elite sprinter to a race—and wins—the Olympic medalist track coach sees he has something: crazy natural talent. Thing is, Ghost has something else: a lot of anger, and a past that he is trying to outrun. Can Ghost harness his raw talent for speed and meld with the team, or will his past finally catch up to him?"
