I and You by Lauren Gunderson

April 5 – 29, 2018

Anthony arrives at schoolmate Caroline’s house bearing waffle fries, a battered poetry book and an urgent homework assignment. Caroline is sick and hasn’t been to school in months. She is as quick and elusive as Anthony is quiet and steadfast; both are smart as whips. As these two let down their guards, their seemingly mundane poetry project reveals a much deeper mystery that has brought them together. With its stunning conclusion, Gunderson’s I AND YOU is a joyful celebration of the beauty of human connectedness.
