Event Details

For Black History Month, the Pico Rivera Library Book Club is reading the bestselling novel, The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. 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 and protesters are taking to the streets in his name. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

For adults
