Event Information

Weekly Book Club Meeting #4

The Hate You Give, by Angie Thomas

For Professional Young Performers, Ages 12-18

As requested by some teens who participated in last month's Book Club, our next book will be The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas. The book explores the life of sixteen-year-old, Starr Carter, who 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 a tragic event. RSVP online to join us for our May/June Book Club!

Parental Advisory: This book contains mature elements including violence, language and some drug and sexual content.

During the meeting:
