Book Club’s October Book – It’s Kind of a Funny Story

WRHS Book Club will be reading Ned Vizzini’s 2006 novel, It’s Kind of a Funny Story, during the month of October. In a nutshell, the book is about a teenager, Craig, who succumbs to the pressures of his prestigious prep school, and winds up in a psychiatric hospital for a week. While there, he encounters a myriad of patients with various problems, including Noelle, who is a cutter. With encouragement from his family and the new friends he meets in the hospital, Craig regains his balance, and discovers a talent for art that he has never nurtured before.

Check out the author’s website here.

And now it’s a movie! Check it out here.

Our next Book Club meeting will be on October 28th. Read the book and join us! There’ll be pizza! And we’re planning on seeing the movie!

See Mr. Geary or Mrs. Kilcourse with any questions.
