 Upcoming Novel Conversations


The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas (book cover)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.

The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton (book cover)Thursday, March 15 : The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton

Edith Wharton won the 1921 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for The Age of Innocence, helping establish her as America’s “First Lady of Letters.” The Age of Innocence is the classic Gilded Age story of reputation, love, livelihood, hope, and family.
