Program staff at the Everhart Museum asked our friends at the Lackawanna County Library System to share some of their favorite titles with our young audience! Book selections were made with reading themes that correspond with our adult book club, Everhart Reads.
We encourage our young readers to visit their local library to check out these great recommendations. Our Lackawanna County Library partners also offer a limited number of Everhart Museum passes that can be checked out just like a book with an LCLS library card.

Landscape with Invisible Hand by M. T. Anderson
This recommendation comes from Renee Roberts, Young Adult Services and Project Manager at the Abington Community Library
Note from Ms. Renee
Landscape with Invisible Hand explores the new life of Adam Costello once the vuvv invade Earth. Promised amazing technology and life-saving medical advances, Adam soon finds the cost of a new civilization invading his own is too much. From faking his love story to trying to win a contest to save his family from financial ruin, Landscape with Invisible Hand is a stunning satire about colonization.
