Novel Conversations is a book group that alternates between classic novels and more recent works of fiction and nonfiction. Participants are welcome to come to all the meetings or just those that sound interesting. Multiple copies of each book are available for checkout in the library and are, whenever possible, made available in large print, audiobook, and ebook editions.
Novel Conversations meets the third Thursday of each month from 7:00-8:00 pm in the Board Room. Refreshments are served!
Thursday, February 15 : The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter is caught between two worlds—the lily-white world of the private school she attends and her own neighborhood, where her father is a much-loved grocer but gangs rule the streets. After she sees her childhood friend get shot by a police officer at a traffic stop, those two worlds seem even farther apart, and Starr must find a way to bridge them. Its plot may be ripped from the headlines, but the questions posed by this critically acclaimed young adult novel are timeless.
