Told from the perspective of a generation of children and the family of a girl named Thula who grows up to become a revolutionary, How Beautiful We Were is a masterful exploration of what happens when the reckless drive for profit, coupled with the ghost of colonialism, comes up against one community’s determination to hold on to its ancestral land and a young woman’s willingness to sacrifice everything for the sake of her people’s freedom.
We will meet in the upstairs Gallery space from 7 – 8 pm, and refreshments will be served. Our Evening Book Club is open to one and all, whether or not you are a Morristown or Morris Township resident. Please feel free to join us even if you didn’t get a chance to finish the book. Copies of the book are reserved for Book Club members at the main circulation desk. Ask a librarian for a copy. If you have any questions about this book club, please email email@example.com with the subject line “Evening Book Club”.
We look forward to seeing you there!
