Jason Reynolds - Long Way Down — in the Children & Teens Dept. **FOR TEENS AND ADULTS

Upcoming Event
Thursday, October 26, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Fifteen-year-old Will stands in his building’s elevator, a gun tucked into his waistband, heart thudding with grief and fear. When he reaches the lobby, he knows what he has to do: shoot the man who killed his older brother. But as the elevator descends from the seventh floor to the first, something unbelievable happens that forces Will to question everything he’s been taught. The events unfold over the course of a single minute, revealed in verse. Long Way Down will ignite an important conversation about gang violence and the rigid “rules” of masculinity. Ages 14 and up.
