Discussion of VT READS book, “Wonder” 9/23/14 - 9/23/14
A discussion on Wonder, a New York Times bestseller, with scholar Francette Cerulli. This program is open to the public. VT Reads is a program of the Vermont Humanities Council and hosted by the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Wonder is an extraordinary tale about a powerful, shared feeling that is present throughout our entire lives: the desire to fit-in and be accepted -- a source of anxiety for all of us, but it is particulary intense when we are growing up, especially if we are different. August is an “ordinary ten-year-old kid”, apart from a marked facial deformity. Come to the library, take out the book, and read August’s remarkable stories of struggles and triumphs as he deals with the unwelcomed attention and skin-deep judgements that are all-too-common in our society. Then, come back and share your own stories!
