13 Reasons Why: A Panel Discussion

Second Congregational Church, 139 E. Putnam Avenue, Greenwich, will host a panel discussion on the Netflix series Thirteen Reasons Why on Wednesday, May 17, at 7 p.m.

Thirteen Reasons Why features a young girl who commits suicide, flashing back to the 13 different reasons why she decides to take her own life. It has proven controversial, in part because of its edgy and sometime graphic content, and many schools in our area have sent warnings to parents out of concern that it glamorizes suicide.

But the show also raises important questions for communities about the challenges our young people face.

“It’s a flawed show in some ways,” said Rev. Maxwell Grant, “yet we should learn from it rather than fear it.”  

The public is invited to join in a community conversation about the show and also bullying, cyberbullying and how it can lead to teen suicide.

Panelists include:

  • Reverend Maxwell Grant: Senior Minister at Second Congregational Church
  • Reverend Shawn Garan: Minister at Second Congregational Church
  • Liz Perry: Head of Upper School, St. Luke’s, New Canaan
  • Peyton Larkin: Senior at Greenwich High School

This presentation is free and open to the greater Greenwich community and all are encouraged to attend with their teenagers for this informative discussion.

For parking, pull into the left side of church driveway and continue to parking lot area.
