VIRTUAL EVENT: Middle Ground Book Club

Tuesday, June 24:30—5:00 PMVirtual Event via ZoomWilmington Memorial Library175 Middlesex Ave, Wilmington, MA, 01887

Middle Ground Book Club is back with a "funny, charming, and incredibly touching...story about friendship, family, and the courage it takes to live your truth," The Best At It by Maulik Pancholy, accessible via Hoopla! During a Zoom meeting, we'll discuss the book, catch up on how you're doing, and talk about what other great reads we'll tackle virtually this summer! 

The Best At It summary: From award-winning actor Maulik Pancholy comes a hilarious and heartfelt middle grade debut about a gay Indian American boy coming into his own. Perfect for fans of Tim Federle's Nate series. Rahul Kapoor is heading into seventh grade in a small town in Indiana. The start of middle school is making him feel increasingly anxious, so his favorite person in the whole world, his grandfather, Bhai, gives him some well-meaning advice: Find one thing you're really good at and become the BEST at it. Those four little words sear themselves into Rahul's brain. While he's not quite sure what that special thing is, he is convinced that once he finds it, bullies like Brent Mason will stop torturing him at school. And he won't be worried about staring too long at his classmate Justin Emery. With his best friend, Chelsea, by his side, Rahul is ready to crush this challenge.... But what if he discovers he isn't the best at anything?
