Explore a New World with the Bookshare Book Club’s July Pick

Welcome again to the Bookshare Book Club! Each month Bookshare staff will choose a book for members to read before hosting a discussion on the last Friday of the month. The conversation will take place on Bookshare Twitter, using the hashtag #BKSBookClub. While we have created this club with adult Bookshare members in mind, everyone is welcome to participate, including non-Bookshare members.

July’s book will be Polaris Rising by Jessie Mihalik. In a universe controlled by three High Houses, Ada von Hasenburg has no true power until she rejects a politically favorable marriage and escapes destiny. But being on the run can’t last forever, and Ada must find a way to save herself and her house before her ex-fiancé gets to her. Good thing the outlaw in her prison cell seems willing to help…

The discussion for Polaris Rising will take place on Friday, July 26th at 12:00 pm PT on the Bookshare Twitter account. Be sure to tune in for a great conversation, as well as the announcement of our August book.

Polaris Rising is just one of the many intriguing books on Bookshare’s summer reading lists for young readers, middle school students, teens, and adults. Browse the lists.
