Evening Book Discussion
The Vanishing Half, by Brit Bennett
Thursday, August 5 @ 7pm




“Bennett’s tone and style recalls James Baldwin and Jacqueline Woodson, but it’s especially reminiscent of Toni Morrison’s 1970 debut novel, The Bluest Eye.” —Kiley Reid, Wall Street Journal 

The Vignes twin sisters will always be identical. But after growing up together in a small, southern black community and running away at age sixteen, it's not just the shape of their daily lives that is different as adults, it's everything.

Books are now available at the library's Circulation Desk. Click on the cover for the Goodreads description and summary.
