Event description


Books can transport us to magical places, sending on us journeys we might not otherwise be able to take. Books can also help us learn new things and understand the world from new perspectives.

Please join us this year as we explore issues that are important to girls and their families through young adult novels! The 2017-2018 Book Club is co-sponsored by The Women's Inter-Cultural Exchange.

The November Read is Tiffany D. Jackson's Allegedly

Mary Addison, a black 15-year-old from Brooklyn, has been locked up in “baby jail” for six years, after killing a three-month-old white child named Alyssa. Or so that’s what they said. Now living in a group home, Mary, who is bright, quiet, and well behaved, endures continuous bullying from the staff and other girls at the all-female group home. Her one escape is volunteering at a nursing home and having secret rendezvous with Ted, a fellow volunteer also living in a group home. However, when Mary becomes pregnant and faces losing custody of the baby, she comes forward with a startling confession: she didn’t kill Alyssa. But who did? The only person who can tell what really happened is Mary’s mother… the one person Mary distrusts of all.
