Join us every month for a lively discussion of a chosen book. March's title is Wonder by R. J. Palacio.
August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid - but his new classmates can't get past Auggie's extraordinary face. The book begins from Auggie's point of view but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community's struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.
Copies of the book are available to pick up from the library front desk approximately one month prior to the meeting. Light refreshments will be served.
