Join The Languages & Learning Center and Beyond Literacy as we read Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas.
Concrete Rose is the prequel to the author's debut novel and feature film, The Hate U Give. In Concrete Rose, Maverick feels strongly about family ties, making choices he feels necessary to help support his mom while his King father serves time, and leave him literally holding his son in a doctor's waiting room after he gets paternity test results back and his babymomma ghosts. Now the child he's raising is impacting the lives of his family and his girlfriend, and the gang life he led to support them all financially could leave them all bearing his responsibilities since it endangers his life. It looks like he may have been offered a chance to go straight, but leaving the King Lords won't be easy, and a "real" job has high demand for low return.
We meet every other Thursday 5:00-6:30 p.m. starting July 8, 2021.
