Bright Young Things
If there's one thing we've noticed at Riverbend, it's that the book is not dead. In fact, some of our most loyal and excited customers are our teenagers. As soon as the school holidays start, we are inundated with these bright young things looking for something new and exciting to read while they have time off.
The Bright Young Things Bookclub is run by Jane Sullivan, and caters to teenagers in years 7 to 10, with ages ranging from 12 to 15. They meet once a month on a Wednesday afternoon from 5-5:45pm (dates in the calendar below).

Please register your interest below, and Riverbend staff will notify you when space opens up in one of the groups you've selected.
Please note: joining our bookclubs requires an annual membership fee of $100, to be paid before you start in order to secure your place.
READING IN MAY
Truly Wildly Deeply by Jenny McLachlan
Annie is starting college and she can 't wait for the adventure to begin. No more being told what to do. No more rules. No more labels. As a teenager with cerebral palsy, independence matters more than anything to Annie. The last thing she's looking for is romance.
Fab is starting college too. He's wild and energetic and he believes that the greatest adventure in life is falling in love. He's left his home in Poland and he feels adrift in the world. The one thing he's looking for is romance.
What will happen when Fab and Annie meet'? Will either of them find what they are truly looking for?
