A Conversation with Angie Thomas about
The Hate U Give
Sunday, October 7, 2018
8:00 p.m. ET, Online
Deadline to RSVP: October 5, 11:59 p.m. ET
Join NCTE and bestselling author Angie Thomas for a live discussion about books, films, literacy, and youth activism. The film version of The Hate U Give opens in select cities October 5 and in theaters everywhere on October 19.
What is the The Hate U Give about?
Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right.
