Description: A classic coming-of-age story, The Outsiders covers two weeks in the life of a "Greaser" named Ponyboy and the deadly rivalry of his gang with the "Socs" (short for socials). Themes of self-identity, love, brotherhood, and death are brought to vivid life in this gritty tale, which was published in 1967 by the then 16 year old S. E. Hinton. Find out what "stay gold, Ponyboy, stay gold," means and why The Chicago Tribune named this as a book "with a powerful message." We will do a deep dive exploration into this book and question whether or not it truly stands the test of time in terms of relevance and readability. Zoom Meeting ID 823 648 5349.
