The Chester Main Teen Book Club is for 6th to 9th graders interested in joining a group of their peers in reading and discussing a book monthly. This book club meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month. Next Meeting: Thursday, September 15, 2022 Summary: Ghost. Patina. Sunny. Lu. Four kids from wildly different backgrounds, with personalities that are explosive when they clash. But they are also four kids chosen for an elite middle school track team—a team that could qualify them for the Junior Olympics.
