The Vermont Humanities Council organizes a statewide community reading program every year where they invite communities to read the same book and engage in a variety of activities related to the book's themes. Join us in reading the Vermont Reads 2020 book The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas.
Mississippi writer Angie Thomas’ debut novel, The Hate U Give, runs headlong into the challenges faced by young black kids in a world that doesn’t value their bodies or respect their voices. Yet it’s a universal story about a young girl making the choice to speak out. Starr’s struggle to find her voice will likely resonate deeply with any kid who is facing down violence in their home, their neighborhood or their country.
We are hosting two virtual book club discussions on The Hate U Give in October. Check out our Book Discussion Groups Page for more details.
