Teen Book Club - The Outsiders

The selection for January's discussion is The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton.

Ponyboy can count on his brothers and his friends, but not on much else besides trouble with the Socs, a vicious gang of rich kids who get away with everything, including beating up greasers like Ponyboy. At least he knows what to expect - until the night someone takes things too far.

Written forty-five years ago, this classic story of a boy who finds himself on the outskirts of regular society remains as powerful today as it was the day it was written.

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 also be served. No prior registration is required. For more information, call 302-226-2665.
