Wallingford Reads YA: X by Ilyasah Shabazz
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

All teens and adults welcome at this book discussion where we discuss Young Adult Literature. In May we will be discussing "X" a novel by Ilyasah Shabazz, daughter of Malcolm X, with Kekla Magoon.  Lauren Rumi moderates.  Copies of the book are available at the Information Desk.  

Malcolm Little's parents have always told him that he can achieve anything, but from what he can tell, that's nothing but a pack of lies.  His father has been murdered, his mother has been taken away, and his dreams of becoming a lawyer have gotten him laughed out of school. Based on the actual events of Malcolm X's life, this novel sheds new light on the formative years of the human-rights leader whose words and actions shook the world.
