The Return of Jason Green, by Suzi Wizowaty. This will be a reading by the author and a discussion. What happens when the best friend of a boy who died at age 11 comes back into the lives of the boy’s parents and their next-door neighbor? How do adults, and children, deal with the death of a child? The Return of Jason Green, Suzi’s third novel, explores the complexities of adult friendship under stress. Please join us for a discussion of responsibility and love, loyalty and betrayal, in The Return of Jason Green and in life. It is not necessary to have read the book in order to participate.
Discussions are led by OZ member, author and social justice advocate, Suzi Wizowaty. Suzi served three terms in the Vermont Legislature. Getting to know some of the inmates when she worked in prisons made her question the workings of the criminal justice system. In 2013 she founded Vermonters for Criminal Justice. Suzi has had three novels published, and has led hundreds of book discussions through the Vermont Humanities Council in public libraries, “Literature & Medicine” program in several Vermont hospitals, and regular poetry workshops in Vermont prisons.
