August 2010 Discussion
Marcelo in the Real World will be the topic of discussion at our August 23rd meeting. Though it is typically found in the Young Adult section of libraries, this novel will appeal to adults of all ages. It is the story of a 17 yr old boy, Marcelo, who has Asperger's Syndrome. He has always gone to a school for kids with special needs and is looking forward to working there over the summer. Suddenly, his father tells him that he needs to experience the "real world" and work in his law office over the summer. If Marcelo is able to follow the rules, he can go back to his special school. Otherwise, he will go to public high school for his Senior year.
Discussion will take place in the First Amendment Room of the Eldridge branch at 6:30 p.m., August 23rd.
