June 28: The Hate U Give

Friday, June 28 from 1-3:30 PM
Sohier Room, Main Library

A white police officer, a black teenager; a traffic stop, a tragic death. The Hate U Give, based on the acclaimed novel by Angie Thomas, follows the fallout to deliver a riveting, ripped-from-the-headlines tale about race, class, and division in America—and how, just maybe, we can still make ourselves whole.

Free and open to adults, with free popcorn! Thanks to the Friends of the Beverly Public Library for sponsoring this program. Questions? Contact Matthew at martens@noblenet.org.
