Campus Community Book Club Meeting

Wednesday, 8 January, 2020
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

The Campus Community Book Club will meet on Wednesday, January 8th in the Library in Morrison Hall from 12 pm to 1 pm. We are reading Born A Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah, host of The Daily Show. It's the compelling, inspiring, and comically sublime story of one man’s coming-of-age, set during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. 

Born a Crime is the tale of a mischievous young boy, born to a white Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother at a time when such a union was punishable by five years in prison. The book chronicles his early sheltered childhood as he grows into a restless young man struggling to find himself in a world where he was never supposed to exist. It's also the story of that young man’s relationship with his fearless, rebellious, and fervently religious mother - his teammate, a woman determined to save her son from the cycle of poverty, violence, and abuse that would ultimately threaten her own life.

The club is open to all members of our campus community.

Participation is free. Books are not. Obtain at your library or bookstore.
