Living Literature Presents: The Hate U Give


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Living Literature has created a four person, readers' theater version of this year's Reading Across RI 2018 selection, The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. This YA book has already gotten a lot of national attention and promises to be a popular point of discussion. The book begins with an all too common event: a young black male shot and killed after being stopped for a broken taillight. The remainder of the book looks at the effects of this event on that victim's passenger and childhood friend, her family, friends, the police and the community at large. There will be a group discussion following the presentation.
