To get New Yorkers started, the NYPL is making one of the challenged books—popular YA title Last Night at the Telegraph Club by Malinda Lo—available with no waits via our free e-reader app SimplyE through June 26. Additional physical copies will also be available across our branches.
Winner of the National Book Award and featured on NYPL’s Best Books for Teens of 2021 list, this book explores issues of race and sexuality—and has been the subject of recent book banning efforts.
