MHL & Parent to Parent: The 57 Bus Book Discussion

Thursday, January 17, 2019

Parent to Parent and MHL Teen Services Librarians will facilitate a discussion of The 57 Bus, Dashka Slater's account of the true story of two very different teens whose paths crossed on a fateful bus trip. In School Library Journal, Kierra Parrot writes, "Slater artfully unfolds a complex and layered tale about two teens whose lives intersect with painful consequences. This work will spark discussions about identity, community, and what it means to achieve justice." Parent-to-Parent is an organization dedicated to bringing informative and helpful speakers to area parents seeking more information on relevant child-rearing topics. Teen Services Librarians Renata Sancken and Anna Tschetter will help facilitate this discussion and invite tweens, teens, and their caregivers to discuss this timely story.
