jeu. 6 septembre à 01:00
Introducing Forever Young, a book group for fans of young adult (YA) fiction who are a little less Y and a lot more A. Join us as we discuss LIFE INSIDE MY MIND edited by Jennifer Burkart. ( https://www.darienlibrary.org/catalog/work/165647 ). About LIFE INSIDE MY MIND ( https://www.darienlibrary.org/catalog/work/165647 ) Your favorite YA authors including Ellen Hopkins, Maureen Johnson, and more recount their own experiences with mental illness in this raw, real, and powerful collection of essays that explores everything from ADD to PTSD. Have you ever felt like you just couldn’t get out of bed? Not the occasional morning, but every day? Do you find yourself listening to a voice in your head that says “you’re not good enough,” “not good looking enough,” “not thin enough,” or “not smart enough”? Have you ever found yourself unable to do homework or pay attention in class unless everything is “just so” on your desk? Everyone has had days like that, but what if you have them every day? LIFE INSIDE MY MIND is an anthology of true-life events from writers of this generation, for this generation. These essays tackle everything from neurodiversity to addiction to OCD to PTSD and much more. The goals of this book range from providing home to those who are feeling alone, awareness to those who are witnessing a friend or family member struggle, and to open the floodgates to conversation. Need a copy of the book? Holler and I'll put one aside for you at Darien Library!
