Book Discussion: Darius the Great is Not Okay by Adib Khorram

Black Earth Public Library

This event will take place at the Black Earth Public Library with students that participated at the earlier Challenger Deep book discussion, and the BEPL book club participants.

Darius doesn't think he'll ever be enough, in America or in Iran. Darius Kellner speaks better Klingon than Farsi, and he knows more about Hobbit social cues than Persian ones. He's about to take his first-ever trip to Iran, and it's pretty overwhelming--especially when he's also dealing with clinical depression, a disapproving dad, and a chronically anemic social life. In Iran, he gets to know his ailing but still formidable grandfather, his loving grandmother, and the rest of his mom's family for the first time. And he meets Sohrab, the boy next door who changes everything.
