Welcome to the new Get Lit! Book Club!
This book club will meet at Auntie's Bookstore the last Sunday of every month from 6-7pm.
Leading up to the Get Lit! Festival held in April, this book club will be reading a book each month by one of the contributing authors. The discussion for these meetings is focused on craft elements: use of language, how form works within the genre, what readers found compelling, what challenged them while reading, etc. Genres will range from fiction to nonfiction to poetry.
We will be reading the fiction novel Until We Fall by Nicole Zelniker
Leader: Tricia (she/her)
This group meets at Auntie's the last Sunday of every month at 6pm.
Isla, a Black, transgender girl, is just an ordinary student when government forces arrest her and her teacher for revolutionary activity. This action turns Isla into an activist working for social justice. What follows is an exhilarating ride marked by danger, close calls, and betrayals, with love and friendship as the reward among a LGBTQ+ community. Throughout this coming of age dystopian novel are the cornerstones of an authoritarian government: loss of civil rights, violence, suppression, and, most importantly, the inevitable countermovement. It is within this movement that all human life is valued and fought for, and it is within this movement that heroes are born.
