January 2018 Meeting

It’s the inaugural meeting of the Pride Lit Club!

Join us to discuss Dashka Slater’s “The 57 Bus: A True Story of Two Teenagers and the Crime That Changed Their Lives” from 6 to 7:30 p.m. here at the Pride Center. A bit about the book from Goodreads:

“If it weren’t for the 57 bus, Sasha and Richard never would have met. Both were high school students from Oakland, California, one of the most diverse cities in the country, but they inhabited different worlds. Sasha, a white teen, lived in the middle-class foothills and attended a small private school. Richard, a black teen, lived in the crime-plagued flatlands and attended a large public one. Each day, their paths overlapped for a mere eight minutes. But one afternoon on the bus ride home from school, a single reckless act left Sasha severely burned, and Richard charged with two hate crimes and facing life imprisonment. The case garnered international attention, thrusting both teenagers into the spotlight.”

Parking is available on S. Elmwood Ave. and W. Chippewa St., as well as limited space in the Evergreen Health client parking lot off Chippewa (about 20 spaces).
