Tween Book Club: "Wonder" by R.J. Palacio

Thu., 11/16/17, 4pm - 4:45pm @ MCPL Wausau

This event has passed. View upcoming events.

Once a month, gather with fellow tweens to talk about a selected book, then stay and participate in a few fun and crazy "Minute to Win It" challenges! In November, we'll discuss "Wonder" by R.J. Palacio before the movie version comes out Nov. 17!

Auggie Pullman is about to start school after being homeschooled for years. But Auggie is not your ordinary middle-schooler: he's had 27 surgeries to correct facial anomalies he was born with, and his face still elicits stares and cruel nicknames. As he learns to navigate public school, Auggie experiences both relentless bullying and real kindness while his classmates and community learn a life-changing lesson in empathy.

After the book discussion, stick around to face off against others in some fun "Minute to Win It"-style challenges! Free and open to all tweens, with no registration required. Call 715-261-7220 for more information.
