New venue: The Truck Yard. This is an outdoor venue, and weather is predicted to be nice. There are several food truck options and drinks available (no coffee this month). It may be difficult to find us, anyone who arrives first, please try to get a large table, and have the book out so that others can find us. Thanks!
In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
