Monday Night Book Group
August 14th, 6:30 - 7:30 p.m.
“…the kaleidoscopic story of the quintessential, but mostly ignored, American murder—a “ghettoside” killing, one young black man slaying another—and a brilliant and driven cadre of detectives whose creed is to pursue justice for forgotten victims at all costs. Ghettoside is a fast-paced narrative of a devastating crime, an intimate portrait of detectives and a community bonded in tragedy, and a surprising new lens into the great subject of why murder happens in our cities—and how the epidemic of killings might yet be stopped.”
Everyone who has read the book is invited to attend. If you need a copy of the book, please stop by the front desk, call, or email the library to reserve a copy..
