The Challenge: We are challenging our community to step out of their reading comfort-zones and read a new genre or type of book you may not naturally pick up. Each month we will curate selections that fit the challenge, and we will feature them here, in-store, and on social media. We would love for you to share with us and tag us via our social media what you are reading for the challenge! This month's challenge is to read a novella.

The Book Club:

We will also host a virtual book club that will discuss a book that fits that month's challenge. This book club is free and open to anyone. You simply have to register via the zoom link. We will offer 20% off the book club if you want to purchase it from us, but this is not necessary to participate. With us, you may buy in-store, call in, or do curbside pickup. You may buy online, but you must select PAY AT STORE, to receive the discount. Then, you can pay at the store over the phone or in personWe will meet December 11th, 2022, at 7PM.

This Month's Book Club pick is...

 

Binti By Nnedi Okorafor

Her name is Binti, and she is the first of the Himba people ever to be offered a place at Oomza University, the finest institution of higher learning in the galaxy. But to accept the offer will mean giving up her place in her family to travel between the stars among strangers who do not share her ways or respect her customs.

Knowledge comes at a cost, one that Binti is willing to pay, but her journey will not be easy. The world she seeks to enter has long warred with the Meduse, an alien race that has become the stuff of nightmares. Oomza University has wronged the Meduse, and Binti's stellar travel will bring her within their deadly reach.

If Binti hopes to survive the legacy of a war not of her making, she will need both the the gifts of her people and the wisdom enshrined within the University, itself -- but first she has to make it there, alive.
