Teen Book
Monday July 13th, 3-4

Teen Book Club monthly meeting, open to ages 12 to 18 years old. Our June pick is The Shadow Hero by Gene Luen Yang and Sonny Liew.

"In the comics boom of the 1940s, a legend was born: the Green Turtle. He solved crimes and fought injustice just like the other comics characters. But this mysterious masked crusader was hiding something more than your run-of-the-mill secret identity... The Green Turtle was the first Asian American super hero. The comic had a short run before lapsing into obscurity, but the acclaimed author of American Born Chinese, Gene Luen Yang, has finally revived this character in Shadow Hero, a new graphic novel that creates an origin story for the Green Turtle. With artwork by Sonny Liew, this gorgeous, funny comics adventure for teens is a new spin on the long, rich tradition of American comics lore."

Snacks will be provided and anyone new is welcome to join us!
