Reading Without Walls Book Club
September 27, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Welcome to our 2nd Reading Without Walls* Book Club meeting! Led by award winning author and well known diversity advocate (and BFL supporter!), Suzanne Brockmann, we’ll be discussing books written by authors of diverse backgrounds, on a wide range of topics (including LGBTQ literature, global issues and historical perspectives of current events) and of multicultural interest.
We invite civil and honest discussion on these topics and look forward to hearing a multitude of perspectives.
We’re reading and discussing Under Rose-Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall
Norah has agoraphobia and OCD. When groceries are left on the porch, she can’t step out to get them. Struggling to snag the bags with a stick, she meets Luke. He’s sweet and funny, and he just caught her fishing for groceries. Because of course he did. Norah can’t leave the house, but can she let someone in? As their friendship grows deeper, Norah realizes Luke deserves a normal girl. One who can lie on the front lawn and look up at the stars. One who isn’t so screwed up. Readers themselves will fall in love with Norah in this poignant, humorous, and deeply engaging portrait of a teen struggling to find the strength to face her demons.
