Book Discussion - A Fault in Our Stars by John Green - Saturday, April 19, 2014, 1PM
In the Fault in Our Stars, John Green has created a soulful novel that tackles big subjects--life, death, love--with the perfect blend of levity and heart-swelling emotion. Hazel is sixteen, with terminal cancer, when she meets Augustus at her kids-with-cancer support group. The two are kindred spirits, sharing an irreverent sense of humor and immense charm, and watching them fall in love even as they face universal questions of the human condition--How will I be remembered? Does my life, and will my death, have meaning?--has a raw honesty that is deeply moving. --Seira Wilson (Amazon) This is the first in a series of book discussions for young adults, led by young adults. This book will be released as a feature film in June.
Book Discussion - A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki - Saturday, May 3, 2014, 10AM
A Tale for the Time Being is a powerful story about the ways in which reading and writing connect two people who will never meet. Spanning the planet from Tokyo’s Electric Town to Desolation Sound, British Columbia, and connected by the great Pacific gyres, A Tale for the Time Being tells the story of a diary, washed ashore in a Hello Kitty lunchbox, and the profound effect it has on the woman who discovers it. This title was the 2013 UW "Go Big Read" selection. Copies are available to check out at the library.
