Join us to discuss "Bridge to Terabithia" by Katherine Paterson. Written in 1977, and winner of the Newbery Medal the following year, it has also been an often challenged/banned book. When Jess Aarons, the fastest runner at school, is challenged and beaten by Leslie Burke, a girl, that is just the beginning of a new season in Jess’s life. They are drawn to each other and create an imaginary world—Terabithia—where they rule and no outsiders can interfere or harm them; nothing except an unexpected tragedy.
