SALA Book Club - "Citizen"
This month our Book Club is reading The Big Read's 10th Anniversary selection, Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine.
“Rankine brilliantly pushes poetry’s forms to disarm readers and circumvent our carefully constructed defense mechanisms against the hint of possibly being racist ourselves. . . . Citizen throws a Molotov cocktail at the notion that reduction of injustice is the same as freedom.”—The New York Times Book Review
Discussion will be hosted by Jeff either at his home in East Hollywood or at a coffee shop in the area, depending on number of RSVPs so please RSVP to let us know you'll be attending.
It's a short one this month. 160 pages. No excuses.
We have no theme or topic for what we read. Attendees each nominate a book for next month, and the final selection is made by a poll on our SALA Facebook group. We meet the 1st Sunday of each month.
