We’ll have a series of events themed around the Fifty Shades novels for our students to enjoy, and will have small group discussions about the books, with a focus on how the adult themes presented in the novels can be applied to their own lives.
This is a “no parents” event that will be staffed entirely by the CLEEC, with the hope that by working with our team outside of the presence of teachers and parents our kids will open up more about how these novels are impacting them, and discuss some of the prominent themes (especially those dealing with sexuality) more readily.
Fifty Shades of Grey
A best-selling work across the globe and budding movie franchise, Fifty Shades of Grey is a teen-romance with a dark edge. The novel deals with many of the main coming of age themes present across the canon of classic literature, but literally throws the issues in the face of the reader as the characters deal with issues of sexual awakening, many of them in a disturbed setting.
Fifty Shades Darker
Fifty Shades Darker expands upon many of the same themes of budding sexuality presented in Fifty Shades of Grey. The novel picks up where the first left off, and takes the reader on an emotional and disturbing ride!
Grab the book from Amazon or Listen to the Fifty Shades Darker audiobook before you come!
Fifty Shades Freed
The third and final book of the series, Fifty Shades Freed is perhaps the darkest of them all. Also scheduled for a movie production sometime within the next 2-3 years, the prominence of this book is not going away any time soon!
If you’ve already read the first two books of the series but haven’t gotten to this one yet, we encourage you to get a jump start before next weekend! Click here to get the book or get the Fifty Shades Freed audiobook and listen to the book before next weekend!
We know that these works present a number of challenging and complex issues for our teens to deal with, which is a big part of the reason why we think it’s so important for our teens to be able to have a free event where they can come and discuss the novels on their own terms.
