Pinney Afternoon Book Group discusses Wonder by R.J. Palacio

Lake Edge Lutheran Church (4032 Monona Dr)
Wednesday, Jan 8, 2:30pm to 3:30pm

The Afternoon Pinney Book Group will host a discussion of Wonder by R.J. Palacio. New attendees always welcome. Note: meeting is at Lake Edge Lutheran Church (4032 Monona Dr.).
Synopsis: August Pullman was born with a facial deformity that, up until now, prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid -- but his classmates can't get past Auggie's extraordinary face. Wonder begins from Auggie's point of view, but soon switches to include his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community's struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.
