Six teens from the neighborhood gathered on this cloudy Friday night to discuss Nina LaCour's latest novel, We Are Okay.
The evening's conversation was led by Arwen, a local bookworm. She had prepared a long list of questions for the discussion, which covered the wide variety of themes found in the book: grief, lesbian love, friendship, sadness, loneliness, and running away.
However, before diving into the list of questions, the group shared their original confusion when picking up the book: based on the front cover, they had all assumed the book was a graphic novel. "Like, what? I opened the book and there was continuous text... Haha I was so sure it was a graphic novel."
After an intense conversation and some pizza, the group bonded over their favorite movies, albums and books. It was a fun evening.
Thanks everybody for coming!!
