Welcome to the new Get Lit! Book Club!
This book club will meet at Auntie's Bookstore the last Sunday of every month from 6-7pm.
Leading up to the Get Lit! Festival held in April, this book club will be reading a book each month by one of the contributing authors. The discussion for these meetings is focused on craft elements: use of language, how form works within the genre, what readers found compelling, what challenged them while reading, etc. Genres will range from fiction to nonfiction to poetry.
We will be reading Hurting Kind by Ada Limón.
U.S. Poet Laureate Ada Limón will be one of the main headliners for the Get Lit! Festival. Her book, Hurting Kind, explores interconnectedness--between the human and nonhuman, ancestors and ourselves.
Leader: Tricia (she/her)
This group meets at Auntie's the last Sunday of every month at 6pm.

"I am the hurting kind." What does it mean to be the hurting kind?
