Chair’s Book Club Selection: The Hate U Give
The Hate U Give tells the story of Starr Carter, a 16-year-old girl who moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the suburban prep school she attends. That uneasy balance is shattered when Starr’s childhood best friend, Khalil, is fatally shot by a police officer, even though he was unarmed.
As Kahlil’s death becomes a national story, sparking protests, Starr and her family become the targets of intimidation by police and a local drug lord. What she says – or does not say – about Kahlil’s death could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.
Look for more details soon on a July webinar, and mark your calendars for August 12, when we’ll discuss The Hate U Give together!
