Join us to discuss "Normal People" by Sally Rooney on Zoom.
"Normal People" explores an unlikely relationship. Connell and Marianne grew up in the same small town, but the similarities end there. At school, Connell is popular and well liked, while Marianne is a loner. But when the two strike up a conversation—awkward but electrifying—something life changing begins.
