This event will be held at our Clement street location.
Please join Green Apple Books at our 506 Clement location on Friday, April 21st at 7:30 as we discuss this month's Community Reading Group selection, Tell Me How It Ends by Valeria Luiselli.
This reading group was formed by Bay Area booksellers and writers who wanted to gather with their communities post-election. Together, the group examines books centered around social justice/activism and hosts separate meetings in San Francisco and Oakland. Both serve as a safe space for the public to read, write, speak, learn, exchange art, offer each other support, and prepare for action. It is the reading group's mission to engage and implement ideas beyond the page and outward into our communities.
So snag yourself a copy and get to reading!
As always, this event is free and open to all who'd like to attend.
Structured around the forty questions Luiselli translates and asks undocumented Latin-American children facing deportation, Tell Me How It Ends (an expansion of her 2016 Freeman's essay of the same name) humanizes these young migrants and highlights the contradiction of the idea of America as a fiction for immigrants with the reality of racism and fear--both here and back home.
