Book Club: The Hate U Give

January 8, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Book Club for an evening of community and conversation as we discuss Angie Thomas’ #1 New York Times  bestselling debut novel, The Hate U GiveEmail our Executive Director at uvanyc@uvanyc.org to RSVP!
About the Book: Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed. Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr. But what Starr does or does not say could upend her community and endanger her life.
