3:00 pm - Page to Screen Book Club

February 15 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us on the third Thursday of every month to find out if the book really is better than the movie. Each month we will read a book and then come together to watch the movie adaptation and discuss our thoughts. Snacks will be served, so make sure to register! 

February’s pick is: The Hate U Give

There are several copies of the book available at the library for pickup. It is also available as an ebook or audiobook on Hoopla, which can be accessed with your library card.

About the Book

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.
