The YA Room is a Melbourne-based Young Adult book club! We meet once a month to discuss our Book of the Month, as well as host a variety of other special events. The YA Room was co-created at the beginning of 2017 by Sarah Robinson-Hatch and Alexandra Panzarino, and it’s run by Sarah and co-hosts Bianca Breen and Shaun Goodhue.
Book of the Month
Set in a darkly glamorous world, The Gilded Wolves is full of mystery, decadence, and dangerous but thrilling adventure.
Paris, 1889: The world is on the cusp of industry and power, and the Exposition Universelle has breathed new life into the streets and dredged up ancient secrets. In this city, no one keeps tabs on secrets better than treasure-hunter and wealthy hotelier, Séverin Montagnet-Alarie. But when the all-powerful society, the Order of Babel, seeks him out for help, Séverin is offered a treasure that he never imagined: his true inheritance.
To find the ancient artifact the Order seeks, Séverin will need help from a band of experts: An engineer with a debt to pay. A historian who can’t yet go home. A dancer with a sinister past. And a brother in all but blood, who might care too much.
Together, they’ll have to use their wits and knowledge to hunt the artifact through the dark and glittering heart of Paris. What they find might change the world, but only if they can stay alive.
Monday 4th February, 6.30 – 8pm at Embiggen Books.
Saturday 9 February, 10 – 4pm at the Wheeler Centre, with Writers Victoria.
