Virtual Book Club

Selected Title: Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng.
"With brilliance and beauty, Celeste Ng dissects a microcosm of American society just when we need to see it beneath the microscope: how do questions of race stack up against the comfort of privilege, and what role does that play in parenting? {...} Be ready to be wowed by Ng's writing-and unsettled by the mirror held up to one's own beliefs." -Jodi Picoult
