Book Club at Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art

Presented by PBS Utah at Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art

Join PBS Utah and the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art in Logan for a screening and discussion about the pressures facing teens these days. This is the fourth installment of our partnership with NEHMA utilizing our Book Club in a Box Program. We will come having read Dear Evan Hansen, and watch clips from the original KUED production, Hope Lives. Davey Davis, who is featured in the film, will be there to answer questions, and Dr. Lisonbee will lead a discussion on the book.

Please RSVP to teri.guy@usu.edu 

The diverse and intimate stories that we see from both Hope Lives: Preventing Teen Suicide and Dear Evan Hansen address the sensitive yet pressing issue of teen suicide. Some of the key factors in assessing suicidal ideation in teens include feeling isolated, depressed, and alone. The documentary highlights the impact that students can have on each other when lifting each other up and focusing on prevention. Dear Evan Hansen hones in on one individual’s experience to highlight the impact of what it is like to feel ostracized in a high school environment. We also come to recognize the impact of suicide on others, as well as its causes and prevention. Both the documentary and the book demonstrate the importance of what supportive classmates and friends can do, as well as how a supportive family can assist in preventing teen suicide and increasing the well-being of teens throughout Utah. The question becomes: What more can we be doing inside and outside of high schools to address teen suicide?
