October Book Club - The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
Update: potluck style, taco Tuesday! I will have corn tortillas, chopped onion & cilantro, and crockpot marinated chicken. Location: Jillian's House in Martinez. I will send out the address a week before the event. *I recently listened to the audiobook version & the narrator, Bahni Turpin was phenomenal! I highly recommend. Book Description: Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed. Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr. But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.

What we're about

This book club is for women in Walnut Creek, Concord, Pleasant Hill and surrounding areas who love to read, talk about books, and socialize. We meet monthly to discuss a book, share good food, and to hang out. Our host, the book, and meeting place will vary based on what the group decides together each month. We also have other social gatherings like dinner parties, movie nights and fun outings. Hope to see you at one of our events!
