Beach Books Book Club
The Beach Books book club meets monthly on the second Thursday of the month at 7pm. It is open to anyone who would care to join us - once or on a regular basis. We read all genres, but primarily fiction.Book club members receive a 20% on the month's selection. Our November meeting is on the 8th and the selection is The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. This is young adult and it is one of the best books I've read in a long time. The movie is out October 19 and if it's in Seaside, maybe we'll all go as a group. The story is of a young black girl raised on the "wrong side of town" but goes to an elite school. When she goes to a neighborhood party a boy she grew up with offers her a ride home. They are predictably stopped by the police and he is fatally shot. How she navigates her role as a witness and the wonderful characters make this an incredibly worthwhile read with much to discuss.
