Book Club: Carrie by Stephen King

October 22, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Event Navigation

For 8th-12th graders.  A discussion by teen participants of the classic horror novel Carrie by Stephen King.  Registration is required.  Call Youth Services at (423)-434-4458 to register.  Each participating teen will receive a new copy of the book two weeks prior to the program.  Teens may keep the book if they attend the program.  In one way or another, everybody abused Carrie. Her fanatical mother forbade this sixteen-year-old misfit everything that was young and fun. She was teased and taunted by her classmates, misunderstood by her teachers, and given up as hopeless by almost everyone. But Carrie had a secret: she posessed terrifying telekinetic powers that could make inanimate objects move, a lighted candle fall, or a door lock. Carrie could make all kinds of startling bizarre, and malevolent things happen. And so she did one night, when feeling scorned and humiliated, and growing angrier and angrier, she became the vengeful demon who let the whole town feel her power.
