Book Discussions – co-sponsor – Galesburg Public Library
“The Hate U Give” – Angie Thomas
6:30 pm
Limited Copies Available. Please ask at the reference desk.

Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, Thomas’ debut novel centers on 16-year-old Starr Carter, who for many years navigated living in two different worlds: the predominantly black community where her family lives and the predominantly white suburban high school that she attends. When one of her childhood best friends, who is unarmed, is killed by a police officer, Starr finds herself as the only witness and must decide if she will speak her truth and stand against police brutality, racial oppression and injustice.

The Galesburg Public Library will facilitate a discussion of the book. Limited copies available for checkout. Ask at the reference desk.

Free to the public.
