Teen Book Club - Looking for Alaska

The selection for August's discussion is Looking for Alaska by John Green.

Before: Miles "Pudge" Halter is done with his safe life at home. His whole life has been one big non-event, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave "the Great Perhaps" even more (Francois Rabelais, poet). He heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young. She is an event unto herself.

After: Nothing is ever the same.

The book club is led by Karen Willey, an 18 year teaching veteran who has spent 17 of those years teaching Language Arts to middle school students. An avid reader herself, Karen has presented numerous times at the state wide Festival of Words conference, focusing on young adult literature. Her educational philosophy has always been to create life long readers and that continues to be her focus today, both in the classroom and in the community.

Snacks and drinks will be served. No prior registration is required. For more information, call 302-226-2665.
