A List of Things That Didn’t Kill Me by Jason Schmidt.

Tuesday, August 16, 4-5pm

A List of Things That Didn’t Kill Me by Jason Schmidt. Jason Schmidt wasn't surprised when he came home one day during his junior year of high school and found his father, Mark, crawling around in a giant pool of blood. Things like that had been happening a lot since Mark had been diagnosed with HIV, three years earlier. Jason's life with Mark was full of secrets. If the straights--people with normal lives--ever found out any of those secrets, the police would come. Jason's home would be torn apart. So the rule, since Jason had been in preschool, was never to tell the straights anything.

Come join us as we enjoy pizza and discuss this month's current book. Beware! There will be spoilers. Register for book club here. Teens 13+.
