Pleasant Hill Reads!

Join the Pleasant Hill Library and the whole city this October to share in Wonder by RJ Palacio. The story centers on ten-year-old Auggie Pullman, who was born with extreme facial abnormalities and not expected to survive. He goes from being home-schooled to entering fifth grade at a private middle school in Manhattan, which entails enduring the taunting and fear of his classmates as he struggles to be seen as just another student. One City, One Book programs are designed to foster community discussion about books by encouraging an entire community to read the same book at the same time.

Special Event at the Library: On Monday, October 24, 6-8pm, come to the Pleasant Hill Library for a book party and Skype with author RJ Palacio!  We'll have a live Skype with RJ at 6pm, followed by food and anti-bully button-making. Plus, prizes for kids who come in costume.
