Banned Books Week Panel: The Hate U Give
To coincide with national Banned Books Week, the Nahman-Watson Library at Greenfield Community College is holding a faculty panel discussion of the award-winning book The Hate U Give on Tuesday September 25th from 12-1pm in the library solarium. This event is free and open to the public and lunch will be provided. GCC professors Alyssa Arnell, David Lanoie, and Linda McCarthy will lead a discussion about the book, which tells the story of a black teenaged girl who witnesses her unarmed friend be shot and killed by a police officer. Published in 2017, this young adult novel also made the American Library Association’s 2017 list of top ten most banned or challenged books. A film adaptation is set to be released next month.
