Library Hosting Book Discussion - Marcelo in the Real World

Do you like to read and talk about great books?  Join us for coffee, treats, and a book discussion of Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco X. Stork on Wednesday, March 26th at 10:00 am.

This book tells the story of Marcelo, a 17-year-old with Asperger's Syndrome.  He has always attended a special school, but the summer after his junior year, his father decides it is time for him to join "the real world," and gets him a job working in the mail room at his father's law firm.  Throughout the summer, Marcelo learns a lot about himself,  friendship, and human nature.

The #StoutReadsYA series is a monthly book discussion open to all in the university community who are interested in reading and young adult literature.  Every month, a new book is read, followed by a casual, hour-long book discussion. Contact the library to reserve a copy of the book.
