Join us at the Wheelock branch September 4 from 6:30 to 7:30 pm, to discuss National Book Award Finalist, Okay for Now (2011) by Gary D. Schmidt.
As a fourteen-year-old who just moved to a new town, with no friends, an abusive father, and a louse for an older brother, Doug Swieteck has all the stats stacked against him until he finds an ally in Lil Spicer--a fiery young lady. Together, they find a safe haven in the local library, inspiration in learning about the plates of John James Audubon's birds, and a hilarious adventure on a Broadway stage. A powerful coming of age story set in the 1960s for all ages!
