Announcing Finding Margo, Losing Gus!

Finding Margo, Losing Gus draws its inspiration from the work of bestselling author John Green, whose Young Adult novels portray teens struggling to make sense out of life and answer the big questions – from learning to empathize and “imagine others complexly” to dealing with tragedy and loss and the unromantic realities of life. Green is best known for his novel “The Fault in Our Stars,” which deals with sixteen-year-old cancer survivors confronting their own mortality and attempting to love and support each other with the little time they have left.

Throughout all four of Green’s bestselling novels run the themes of love and loss, the intricate reality of relationships, and the complex emotions that go along with them. Finding Margo, Losing Gus investigates these themes further, jumping into the space between the novels to explore both the similarities between characters and the diversity of relationships, with particular focus on the un-romanticized reality of so-called “romantic” relationships, and the idea that being there to support your partner in everyday problems is sometimes more important than physical attraction.

Dates: Saturday August 8th at 8 pm, and Sunday August 9th at 2 pm Location: Monroeville Public Library, 4000 Gateway Campus Blvd, Monroeville PA 15146
Suggested Donation: $15 (will be split between Geeksdanz and the Monroeville Library)
