Novel Ideas: Young Adults Book Club

Partnering with our local librarians, Novel Ideas is a book club that will be held here at the 1859 Goodman-LeGrand House & Museum the first Thursday of every month, except January and July, at 7 p.m.


The goal of Novel Ideas is to get a group of people interested in reading young adult fiction (no matter your age) to discuss the books in a safe and unique space.

Don't forget to check our local Tyler Public Library to see if they have a copy or an e-book available!
