  • Mocha & More: In Real Life (grades 6-12)
    Friday, June 26, 2015 - 7:00pm

    Anda loves Coarsegold Online, the massively-multiplayer role-playing game where she spends most of her free time. But things become complicated when she befriends a gold farmer, Raymond, a teen in China who is also playing the game, but for him, it’s a job, and his working conditions are unsafe. Anda soon comes to realize that questions of right and wrong are a lot less straightforward when a real person's real livelihood is at stake.

    We meet at the Starbucks on Cherry and your first drink is on us. The first 7 registered teens to check in at the Youth Service desk get a free copy of the book. Heads up: This book has a suggested reading audience of 6-12th grade.
