The Next Great Paulie Fink
Monday, April 29, 2019 – 5:00pm
Join us on Monday, April 29th at 5:00 p.m. as Ali Benjamin, the author of The Thing About Jellyfish, presents her new book The Next Great Paulie Fink.
In this highly anticipated second novel by the author of the award-winning, bestselling The Thing About Jellyfish, being the new kid at school isn’t easy, especially when you have to follow in the footsteps of a classroom prankster like Paulie Fink…Told via multiple voices, interviews, and other documents, The Next Great Paulie Fink is a lighthearted yet surprisingly touching exploration of how we build up and tear down our own myths…about others, our communities, and ourselves.
“A witty, tender, and utterly engaging modern school story that draws on the wisdom of the ages.”—School Library Journal, starred review
