Meet the Author: Angie Thomas

Angie Thomas’s first book, The Hate U Give, shot to the top of the New York Times bestseller list and is already being made into a major motion picture. This young adult novel focuses on the life of Starr Carter, a sixteen year old girl negotiating two different worlds; the upper-crust prep school she attends and the poverty-stricken neighborhood where she grew up. Thomas’ work thoughtfully examines issues of justice, gun violence, racial profiling, and political activism. Books will be available for purchase and signing.   Registration required.
