College Bound Books: Persepolis

persepolis

High school students preparing for college or who just want to explore new literature are invited join us for College Bound Books. 

The book is Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi. Told in graphic novel format, Persepolis paints an unforgettable portrait of daily life in Iran: of the bewildering contradictions between home life and public life and of the enormous toll repressive regimes exact on the individual spirit. Marjane's child's-eye-view of dethroned emperors, state-sanctioned whippings, and heroes of the revolution allows us to learn as she does the history of this fascinating country and of her own extraordinary family.

We meet on May 10th at 4:00pm!

Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book Club: House of the Scorpion

House of the ScorpionHouse of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer

Opium is a dystopian society in which clones are created to ensure the survival of the person who’s DNA they possess. Most clones have their brain removed at birth, but Matt is different. He was cloned from the dictator of Opium, and was raised fully intact. Even though he is educated and raised in the lap of luxury, those around him see him as a soulless animal. That is, everyone but his caretaker and two other people who love and accept him. This is a story of humanity, acceptance, and finding purpose.
