Green, Sam Graham-FelsenGreen is a classic coming-of-age story set in 1992 – 1993, told by six-grader, DavidGreenfeld. David lives in Boston’s historic Jamaica Plain neighborhood along with his parents and his younger brother. He is one of the only white students at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School, where he tries his best to fly under the radar of his peers, who pick on him for his clothes, his newly pubescent awkwardness, and—sometimes implicitly, sometimes explicitly—his skin color. His best friend is a black classmate, who like David is an outsider. Sam will present his novel in person at Bethlehem Public Library. Jack Karp will be moderating the discussion.
