Join us for our December Book Club meeting to discuss "The Hate U Give" by Angie Thomas
“They finally put a sheet over Khalil. He can’t breathe under it. I can’t breathe.”
The last words of Eric Garner, adopted and amplified by the Black Lives Matter movement, echo again in the early pages of Angie Thomas’s young-adult novel The Hate U Give. By the time she’s 16, Starr Carter, the protagonist of the book, has lost two of her childhood friends to gun violence: one by a gang drive-by, and one by a cop. A timely topic and we’re sure to have a lively discussion.
This is our final meeting of the year and we’ll celebrate the holidays with our Annual Gift Wrapped Book Exchange. Please bring a wrapped book (new or gently used). For more information, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
