The Deeper Than Our Skins virtual teen book club has been discussing books each month that offer points of connection across time and cultures. Through these books, readers discover both the common human experience and the importance of hearing unique stories.
On Tuesday, December 15 teens can meet virtually with Stacey Lee, award-winning author of the December book club selection "The Downstairs Girl." A native of Southern California and fourth-generation Chinese American, Stacey graduated from UCLA, then got her law degree. After practicing law for several years, she finally took up the pen because she wanted the perks of being able to nap during the day, and it was easier than moving to Spain. Stacey dreamed of writing books for a living since she was nine.
Teens can pick up a free copy of "The Downstairs Girl" at any Garfield County Library on a first come, first served basis. No library card is needed. The book is also available as an eBook or eAudiobook here. This discussion is free and open to all teens.
