One Book on the Riverbend Event Family Book Discussion:

Meeting Room 3 Wednesday, May 23rd at 6:00PM

Join us to discuss the 2018 One Book on the Riverbend title: Wonder by R.J. Palacio on Wednesday, May 23rd at 6:00PM in Meeting Room 3 at Russell Library 123 Broad St, Middletown.

The book begins with, “My name is August. I won't describe to you what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse.”
Auggie is ten years old and wants to be just like everyone else.
He is, however, far from ordinary. Born with a terrible facial abnormality, he has been home-schooled by his parents his entire life in an attempt to protect him from the cruelty of the outside world. Now, Auggie's parents are sending him to a real school. Narrated by Auggie and the people around him whose lives he touches, Wonder is a frank, funny, moving debut to be read in one sitting, passed along to others, and remembered long after the final page.

Read the book along with a Parent, Grandparent, or a Friend and join us!

Discussion will be led by Christy Billings, Chair of One Book on the Riverbend.
