About this event

First book club discussion is Saturday April 8 from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Join us for the launch of da Young Adult Book Club! Open to everyone over 18, this club is a great way to meet people and nerd out over some really great books!

Our first book is This Is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone, a fantastic and breathtaking science fiction novel that tells of a clandestine romance across time and space.

We meet the 2nd Saturday of every other month and we will vote on our next reads at meetings. da Shop is also offering a special BOGO 40% off This Is How You Lose the Time War to celebrate the club's debut, so bring a friend!

About the Book:

Among the ashes of a dying world, an agent of the Commandant finds a letter. It reads: Burn before reading. Thus begins an unlikely correspondence between two rival agents hellbent on securing the best possible future for their warring factions. Now, what began as a taunt, a battlefield boast, grows into something more. Something epic. Something romantic. Something that could change the past and the future.

Except the discovery of their bond would mean death for each of them. There's still a war going on, after all. And someone has to win that war.

About da Shop:

da Shop: books + curiosities is Honolulu's favorite community bookstore. Located in Kaimuki and uniquely curated for locals, da Shop is where books, print publishing, and community converge to celebrate independent bookselling, books as artifacts, and bookstores as a cultural space where anyone may encounter ideas to enrich and inspire their lives.
