6:00 PM, Arcata Library's YA Book Club reads 'Bitter,' by Akwaeke Emezi (meeting in Person)
Thursday, August 25, 2022
Tonight we're discussing 'Bitter,' by Akwaeke Emezi, the prequel to their novel, 'Pet.' (Snacks, too!) After a childhood in foster care, Bitter is thrilled to have been chosen to attend Eucalyptus, a special school where she can focus on her painting surrounded by other creative teens. But outside, the streets are filled with protests against the deep injustices that grip the city. A story of the power of youth, protest, and art. Are you a teen who has read this book or wants to? Come by to join the discussion!
