Love is the Higher Law

Love Is the Higher Law

"First there is a Before, and then there is an After. . . ."
The lives of three teens--Claire, Jasper, and Peter--are altered forever on September 11, 2001. Claire, a high school junior, has to get to her younger brother in his classroom. Jasper, a college sophomore from Brooklyn, wakes to his parents' frantic calls from Korea, wondering if he's okay. Peter, a classmate of Claire's, has to make his way back to school as everything happens around him. Here are three teens whose intertwining lives are reshaped by this catastrophic event. As each gets to know the other, their moments become wound around each other's in a way that leads to new understandings, new friendships, and new levels of awareness for the world around them and the people close by. David Levithan has written a novel of loss and grief, but also one of hope and redemption as his characters slowly learn to move forward in their lives, despite being changed forever.

the show must go on

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we will no longer be able to show Twilight at our pizza party on Wednesday, November 18. However! We will still be raffling off our Edward stand-up (he's starting to creep us out a little...I think he may be watching us in our sleep...) and chowing down on pizza while watching a movie.

What movie, you ask? Good question! We're very excited to show Coraline, the movie based on Neil Gaiman's creepy story about a girl who ventures into an alternate reality, where nothing is as it seems and she must battle an evil spirit to save her life and the lives of the people she loves.

So, to recap:

What: Coraline screening & Edward stand-up raffle

When: Wednesday, Nov. 18 @ 7pm

Where: Central Library Tabby Theater

How Much: $2 at the door
