Program Description

Event Details

Pick up a copy of this month's book in Teen Central and join us for a discussion and snacks. 

Join us for a lively discussion of In Real Life by Cory Doctorow. In this book, Anda delves into the multiplayer role game Coarsegold Online. It's a place where she can be a leader, a fighter, a hero. It's a place where she can meet people from all over the world, and make friends. But things become a lot more complicated when Anda befriends a gold farmer – a poor Chinese kid whose avatar in the game illegally collects valuable objects and then sells them to players from developed countries with money to burn. This behavior is strictly against the rules in Coarsegold, but Anda soon comes to realize that questions of right and wrong are a lot less straightforward when a real person's real livelihood is at stake.

This program is part of FVRLibraries’ Revolutionary Reads series.
