The Hate You Give book coverJoin us on the 3rd Thursday of the month to hang out, eat snacks, and talk about books!

In August, we’re discussing The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas!

DESCRIPTION: Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter lives in two very different worlds—a poor neighborhood with her family and a fancy suburban prep school where she attends. Starr witnesses a shocking event that threatens to upend the uneasy balance between these worlds. She watches as her unarmed, childhood best friend is fatally shot at the hands of a police officer. Soon afterward, his death is a national headline with opinions from each side surfacing. But what really went down that night? The only person alive who can answer that is Starr. She must choose her words carefully because what she says could stir her community or endanger her life.
