Many Voices Teen Book Group: The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue

Saturday, March 17 - 2:30pm - 3:30pm
Location: S. Donald Sussman Teen Library
Audience: Teens, Teen Reads, Teen Events

Welcome to the Many Voices Teen Book Group, where we explore diversity in Young Adult fiction. This is a social event where readers will have a chance to chat after the discussion and enjoy refreshments throughout. Discussions are led by a member of the library’s Pride@PPL team.

For March we will be reading The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee.

“Henry “Monty” Montague was bred to be a gentleman. His passions for gambling halls, late nights spent with a bottle of spirits, or waking up in the arms of women or men, have earned the disapproval of his father. His quest for pleasures and vices have led to one last hedonistic hurrah as Monty, his best friend and crush Percy, and Monty’s sister Felicity begin a Grand Tour of Europe. When a reckless decision turns their trip abroad into a harrowing manhunt, it calls into question everything Monty knows, including his relationship with the boy he adores. “

About the Series » Many Voices Teen Book Group

Many Voices at PPL Teen is a book group with two purposes:

  1. To recognize the need for all teens to see themselves mirrored in the books on our shelves, and to use fiction as a window into other lives, cultures, and worldviews beyond their own.
  2. To create a space for the diverse teen voices in our own community to share the books that excite and engage them.

This group is open to all teens ages 12-19 interested in exploring diversity through contemporary YA fiction. Each month is a free-choice read based on a unique theme, chosen by the book group members. We meet in the Teen Library on the last Saturday of the month to share about our reading and look forward to seeing you!

Many Voices is open to all teens ages 12-19 interested in exploring diversity through contemporary YA fiction, and is a safe space for everyone, regardless of race, color, creed, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, religion, ancestry, national origin, or physical or mental ability. Discrimination, hate speech, and harassment will not be tolerated.

Please contact the teen staff at or call us at (207) 871-1700 x773 with any questions or if you need help finding a book for this month’s topic!
