Young Adult Cancer Book Club

Looking to read a good book (cancer or not cancer related) and connect with other young adult cancer survivors and caregivers at the same time?  At the Lacuna Loft Young Adult Cancer Book Club, together we choose a book.  Lacuna Loft sends books (sometimes the books are even autographed by the author!) to survivors and caregivers who request them (free of charge to the young adult).  Each week, a new chapter is discussed on the Young Adult Voices portion of the site and at the end of the book, we host a book club discussion via video hangout.

(Lacuna Loft considers anyone diagnosed with cancer, at any stage of the experience, to be a survivor!)


Round 11 has started!  Go here to learn more.

The online discussion of Round 11 of the Young Adult Cancer Book Club has been scheduled!
– Wednesday, May 12th, 4-5:30 pm PT / 6-7:30 pm CT / 7-8:30 pm ET.  If you’re signed up on our email list to receive updates about the book club then you will receive a zoom link in your email ahead of the event.

Round 12 is about to start.  Go here to grab your free book in exchange for writing a paragraph of commentary on an assigned group of chapters.
