Allison Petrus-Wilkins will conduct a discussion of "The Fault In Our Stars" by John Green.
“What makes this novel compelling is not a thrill-a-minute plot but the authenticity of characters deeply engaged in trying to live ‘forever within the numbered days.’ John Green deftly mixes the profound and the quotidian in this tough, touching valentine to the human spirit.”
- The Washington Post
