Divergent Gathering Info

Celebrate the world of Veronica Roth's Divergent Series!

On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives.  Beatrice Prior is classified as Divergent.  Divergents' minds 'move in several different directions' and can't be confined to one way of thinking, meaning that they cannot be controlled.  When Tris uncovers a conspiracy to eliminate all Divergents, she teams with the mysterious Four to find out what makes the powers-that-be so frightened of them.

Attendees will take the Faction Quiz to discern which craft and snack they will get.

Register today at the circulation desk or over the phone.
