Event Details

The Outsiders is a captivating coming-of-age novel by S.E. Hinton that delves into the stark divisions between two rival teenage groups, the Greasers and the Socs, in 1960s Oklahoma. Narrated by Ponyboy Curtis, a sensitive and introspective Greaser, the story follows the tumultuous lives of these young outsiders as they navigate themes of friendship, loyalty, violence, and social class. Through Ponyboy's eyes, readers experience the harsh realities of gang warfare, the raw emotions of teenage rebellion, and the universal quest for identity and acceptance. With its memorable characters, poignant exploration of societal stereotypes, and powerful portrayal of the complexities of adolescence, The Outsiders continues to resonate as a timeless classic of young adult literature.
