Join us to read Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret

Discussion Facilitator: Ann Kelsey

The novel was chosen as the banned book of the month. The protagonist, Margaret Simon, is a sixth- grader who grows up without a religious affiliation because of her parents' interfaith marriage. This contemporary realistic novel was popular with middle-grade readers in the 1970s for its relatable portrayal of a young girl confronting early-adolescent anxieties, such as menstruation, brassieres and boys. The recipient of national honors and book awards, the novel has been challenged for its frank discussion of sexual and religious topics.
