ALPLM Reading Club: The First Rule of Punk
The ALPLM Reading Club invites you to read The First Rule of Punk by Celia C. Pérez and join us in discussion. Maria Luisa prefers to be called Malú. She also prefers to eat vegetarian, the sanctuary of her father’s record store, wearing band t-shirts, playing her music loud, and speaking her mind.
As Malú adapts to a new school in a new city and searches for “her people,” she tries to follow the first and most important rule of punk: Be Yourself. Join us as talk about Malú’s journey as a twelve-year-old, Mexican-American punk navigating the world of middle-school and finding her voice while embracing her heritage.
