Rotating between fiction and nonfiction, the goal is to enjoy and grow our knowledge of the writing accomplished by black, south Asian, native, latinx, and many other authors of color. Come listen, discuss, and learn how the words of those usually underrepresented in literature can fit within the world we live in today.

June 12, 2019, 7pm: This month's pick is 
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

“Delectable and engrossing…A complex and compulsively readable suburban saga that is deeply invested in mothers and daughters…What Ng has written, in this thoroughly entertaining novel, is a pointed and persuasive social critique, teasing out the myriad forms of privilege and predation that stand between so many people and their achievement of the American dream. But there is a heartening optimism, too. This is a book that believes in the transformative powers of art and genuine kindness — and in the promise of new growth, even after devastation, even after everything has turned to ash.” Boston Globe
