Plot: Teenager Thomas wakes up to find himself without any memory of his past in a place called The Glade, the center of a giant maze inside of which live vicious creatures called Grievers. The Glade is inhabited by other teenage boys, all of whom have no memory of their previous life, and who, as a group are working to engineer an escape. Periodically the doors to the maze open allowing the boys to go into it. However, they also close without warning and no boy who has ventured inside has ever survived a night in the maze. But everything begins to change when the latest arrival turns out to be a girl, Teresa (Kaya Scodelario), whose thoughts Thomas can read. Together, they form a special bond and, along with the other boys, they launch a desperate bid for freedom.


10/1 Leadership Book Club Sign-up ENDS

Daring Greatly by Brene Brown

Join the Leadership Book Club and read Daring Greatly the month of October, ending is a book discussion on Oct 28th from 1-2p where we explore the concept of risk and leadership in all aspects of life. FREE book and lunch are included. Only 10 spaces, you must email 
uaf-leadership@alaska.edu or sign up in person at the LIVE Office by Oct 1st.

Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable, or to dare greatly. Whether the arena is a new relationship, an important meeting, our creative process, or a difficult family conversation, we must find the courage to walk into vulnerability and engage with our whole hearts.

In Daring Greatly, Dr. Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability. Based on twelve years of research, she argues that vulnerability is not weakness, but rather our clearest path to courage, engagement, and meaningful connection. The book that Dr. Brown’s many fans have been waiting for, Daring Greatly will spark a new spirit of truth—and trust—in our organizations, families, schools, and communities.
