PRC Book Group - June 12, 2019
Trevor Noah’s unlikely path from apartheid South Africa to the desk of The Daily Show began with a criminal act: his birth. "Born a Crime" is the story of a mischievous young boy who grows into a restless young man as he struggles to find himself in a world where he was never supposed to exist. It is also the story of that young man’s relationship with his fearless, rebellious, and fervently religious mother—his teammate, a woman determined to save her son from the cycle of poverty, violence, and abuse that would ultimately threaten her own life. The eighteen personal essays collected here are by turns hilarious, dramatic, and deeply affecting.
The PRC Book Group, "One Book, One People", at the People's Resource Center brings volunteers, staff, and clients together to discuss some of the best books written about the various countries and cultures of the people we serve, and to get to know one another better.
2nd Wednesdays of the month at lunch (12pm - 1:30pm) in the Megan Bradshaw Learning Center, 201 S. Naperville Road, Wheaton (on the second floor of our building).
