Synopsis: For five years, Hayley and her father, Andy, have been on the road as he struggles to escape the demons that have tortured him since his return from Iraq. Now they are back in the town where he grew up. Perhaps Hayley can have a normal life, put aside her own painful memories, even have a relationship with Finn. Will being back home help Andy’s PTSD, or will his memories drag him to the edge of hell? The Impossible Knife of Memory is Laurie Halse Anderson at her finest: compelling, surprising, and impossible to put down. This is a free teen event, but it is open to everyone!
