This month the teen book club will discuss teenage gun violence, a serious topic in contemporary society. The book selected for the discussion is Long Way Down, a stunning Young Adult (YA) novel written in free verse by New York Times bestselling author Jason Reynolds. The fast-paced story follows grief-stricken, fifteen-year-old Will as he takes the 60-second ride down the elevator in his building, determined to honor “the rules” by taking revenge for the murder of his brother. At each elevator stop, a ghost from his past gets on the elevator to give Will a bigger piece of the story, forcing him to consider the consequences of his actions.

The teen book discussion will be held on Tuesday, February 26 at 4:00 p.m. and will be led by J.H. Atkins, City Commissioner and Citizens Concerned for Human Relations (CCHR) member and local author Heather Henson.
