Pleasant Hill Reads

Oct 30, 2017 12:35PM ● Published by Elena Hutslar

To celebrate Pleasant Hill Reads, free giveaway copies of The First Rule of Punk, by Celia C. Perez, were available at the Pleasant Hill Library during the month of October. The story revolves around twelve-year-old María Luisa O'Neill-Morales (who really prefers to be called Malú), who reluctantly moves with her Mexican-American mother to Chicago and starts seventh grade with a bang by violating the dress code with her punk rock aesthetic and spurning the middle school's most popular girl in favor of starting a band with a group of like-minded weirdos.

On October 30, students met the author on Skype during a special Q&A. Participants also celebrated the story with crafts and music. The aim of Pleasant Hill Reads is to bring the community together to read and explore one great book that can be enjoyed by children, teens, and adults. Copies of The First Rule of Punk were provided free to 5th grade students in Pleasant Hill schools through the generous sponsorship of Friends of the Pleasant Hill Library, Pleasant Hill Community Foundation, Foundation for Pleasant Hill Education, Pleasant Hill Education Commission, and the Pleasant Hill Rotary Club.
