On November 10 @ 7PM at the Morse Pond School, author Alex Gino will speak about his book, “George”. Morse Pond School, Lawrence School, Falmouth High School, and Eight Cousins Book Store are working together to promote this book and important event.
“George” chronicles the life of George, who, although was born a boy, identifies as a girl. She is coming to terms with her gender identity, while only in 4th grade. Her dream is to play Charlotte in her school’s production of Charlotte’s Web, but how will the school react to a boy playing a girl’s role? It’s a wonderful and important read that explores gender identity, fitting in, friendships, and the importance of support from those around you.
