Outside the Lines Book Club: Perks of Being a Wallflower

altWednesday, December 14, 5:30 - 7:00 pm, The Loft, Main Library

Teens grades 6-12 are invited to the loft to discuss Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chobsky, about strong teen protagonists pushing back again normative identities to live their lives with pride. The literary discussion will be a jumping off point for talking about topics such as pop culture, gender, fashion, politics, the Tumblr-verse, and personal narratives. This is a safe space for teens of all identities. Come hang out, meet new friends, eat snacks and chat about what really matters to today’s teens! 

Most people think 15-year-old Charlie is a freak. The only friend he had killed himself, forcing him to face high school alone. But then seniors Patrick and his beautiful stepsister Sam take Charlie under their wings and introduce him to their eclectic, open-minded, hard-partying friends. It is from these older kids that Charlie learns to live and love, until a repressed secret from his past threatens to destroy his newfound happiness.
