Join us to discuss the 2020 novel "The Vanishing Half", by Brit Bennett.

About this month's title:

"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: their families, their communities, their racial identities. Many years later, one sister lives with her black daughter in the same southern town she once tried to escape. The other secretly passes for white, and her white husband knows nothing of her past. Still, even separated by so many miles and just as many lies, the fates of the twins remain intertwined. What will happen to the next generation, when their own daughters' storylines intersect?" (amazon.com)

A limited number of physical copies of the selected title will be available in advance at the Belt Branch for check out; the eAudiobook version is also available on Boundless and OverDrive.

This program is for adults 18+.
