The Purdue University North Central Alpha Mu Pi English Club book club will read and discuss the best-selling novel “The Fault in Our Stars” by John Green on Feb. 27 at 1 p.m. in the Library-Student Faculty Building Assembly Hall, Room 02 on the PNC campus.
“The Fault in Our Stars” is Green’s sixth novel, published in January 2012. The book is told through the eyes of a 16-year-old cancer patient. Her parents push her to attend a support group, where she ends up meeting and falling in love with a 17-year-old, an ex-basketball player and amputee. The title is inspired by a line from from William Shakespeare’s play “Julius Caesar.”
The book has been adapted to a 2014 feature film directed by Josh Boone and starring Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort and Nat Wolff.
The PNC Book Club will meet regularly during the academic year as members read and discuss various books of interest.
