There’s a something for everyone this week in Scranton Reads! Please join us for these wonderful events.
Adolescent Psychology in the Catcher in the Rye
Thursday, October 8th at 7 pm in the Learning Commons at Marywood University, 2300 Adams Avenue Scranton
Please join us to discuss Catcher in the Rye. The discussion will focus on adolescent psychology as it is manifested in this classic work by J. D. Salinger. Leading the discussion will be Marywood University psychology professor David Palmiter, Ph.D., ABPP and his son, Gannon Palmiter, who is a senior at Holy Cross High School in Dunmore.
Some questions to be considered:
- How are today’s teens the same or different from teens in the late 1940s and early 1950s?
- What works well, and what could work better, in terms of adult-teen interactions? Is that question answered differently across the two generations under discussion?
- What do adults, but especially parents and teachers, need to better understand about teen psychology?

Friday, October 9th at 7 pm in Room 305 of the Weinberg Memorial Library
Join us for a screening for Rebel Without a Cause followed by a discussion led by Kevin Norris of the University of Scranton.
