Hi everyone:

I'm super excited to share a reading that Angie Thomas created specifically for Our Shared Shelf members!

Ever since I read this book, I've been wanting to hear the words in the author's voice and my wish came true today. Angie reads the part where Starr's parents give her "The Talk" x 2 and manages to make it both hilarious and heartbreaking.

Take a look and leave a comment to let Angie know what you think.

Thank you, Angie Thomas, you made my week!

With love,
Helen

Has Emma had a chance to interview Angie Thomas yet? I'm excited to see that interview.

But have you seen the interview that our OSS alumni author, Reni Eddo-Lodge did with Angie Thomas? It's so good!

Arti Nair (arti_nair) | 1 comments I loved the clip. This book has truly been a humbling experience for me. There is so much that I assumed I knew or understood...but I really didn't! It is this in-between space where I am deeply moved by the experience of the characters of the book and the community they reflect, but at the same time, learning that I can never really understand it...not completely at least.
