Join the Teen Services Librarians for a brand new book discussion especially for teens in grades 9-12! Every two months, we'll discuss a new title and work together to write a letter to the author. This month, we will be reading:
The Magic Fish by Trung Le Nguyen
Tiến loves his family and friends...but keeps a secret that could change everything. How can Tiến come out to his family when the words don't even exist in their first language?
As Tiến helps his mother learn English by reading her fairytales that intertwine Western and Vietnamese folklore, he hopes to find a way to write his own happy ending. Through magical illustrations and tales of distant lands, this graphic novel speaks to how stories can bring us together even when we don't know the words.
Attendees who read the book and participate in writing a letter to the author at the program will receive 3 hours of community service.
