YA Book Club: Moxie-Bemidji
February 20 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Join us in February for our discussion of “Moxie” by Jennifer Mathieu: Vivian Carter is fed up. Fed up with an administration at her high school that thinks the football team can do no wrong. Fed up with sexist dress codes, hallway harassment, and gross comments from guys during class. But most of all, Viv Carter is fed up with always following the rules.
Viv’s mom was a tough-as-nails, punk rock Riot Girl in the ’90s, and now Viv takes a page from her mother’s past and creates a feminist magazine that she distributes anonymously to her classmates. She’s just blowing off steam, but other girls respond. As Viv forges friendships with other young women across the divides of cliques and popularity rankings, she realizes that what she has started is nothing short of a girl revolution.
