Grades 6 – 12

Do you ever put on a brave when faced with something stressful? Do you ever keep a straight face when you want to laugh? Or cry? Do act differently around a group of friends than you do around your family? These are some of the masks we wear to hide how we are truly feeling. In this year’s One Book One Community title, Wonder by R.J. Palacio, Auggie covers how he truly feels with his helmet as well as his long hair. How do you hide behind a “mask”?

At this creative and thought-provoking event, ‘tweens and teens will make plaster masks of each other and talk about the different masks we wear in different situations to hide how we truly feel and to fit in.

This project is sponsored by an LSTA Grant through the State Library of Ohio. No registration is necessary for this Teen Tuesday event.
