SUNSHINE: Live & Unabridged

Tuesday, April 18th, 2023 at 7:00 pm

Join National Book Award finalist Jarrett J. Krosoczka for the launch of his new young adult graphic memoir, SUNSHINE. Enjoy a live, unabridged reading brought to life via a multimedia presentation coupled with local performers. Part literary event, part experimental theater—this will be a truly remarkable evening.

Each ticket holder will receive an autographed copy of Sunshine upon entry.

ABOUT SUNSHINE:
The extraordinary—and extraordinarily powerful—follow-up to Hey, Kiddo.

When Jarrett J. Krosoczka was in high school, he was part of a program that sent students to be counselors at a camp for seriously ill kids and their families. Going into it, Jarrett was worried: Wouldn’t it be depressing to be around kids facing such a serious struggle? Wouldn’t it be grim?

But instead of the shadow of death, Jarrett found something else at Camp Sunshine: the hope and determination that gets people through the most troubled of times. Not only was he subject to some of the usual rituals that come with being a camp counselor (wilderness challenges, spooky campfire stories, an extremely stinky mascot costume), but he also got a chance to meet some extraordinary kids facing extraordinary circumstances. He learned about the captivity of illness, for sure but he also learned about the freedom a safe space can bring.

Now, in his follow-up to the National Book Award finalist Hey, Kiddo, Jarrett brings readers back to Camp Sunshine, so we can meet the campers and fellow counselors who changed the course of his life.
