The Reluctant Fundamentalist is a riveting, brilliantly unsettling exploration of the shadowy,

Pakistani man and his treatment by Americans in reaction to them.

The Girl with the Louding Voice, by Abi Dare
Thursday, January 28th, 10:00 AM
“The girl with the louding voice is a character for the ages. Adunni is a girl who narrates her own suffering with levity, who paints depth and texture and beauty into her Nigerian homeland, who tenderly cultivates her own humanity even while everything around her seeks to thwart it.”—Jeanine Cummins, New York Times
Register: The Girl with the Louding Voice

OTHER GREAT THINGS TO DO

HELP GET OUT THE VOTE IN GEORGIA!
Every Monday, 2:00 PM, until January 4th
In support of Black Lives Matter, GNPS has been working with Reclaim Our Vote (ROV), 
a volunteer-driven, nonpartisan voter-outreach campaign led by the
Center for Common Ground of Virginia. ROV is dedicated to empowering under-represented voters in
communities of color by increasing voter registration and reducing the barriers to voting.
We are now calling non-registered voters in Georgia to help them to register,
and then we will call to urge all Georgians to vote in the run-off election for the US Senate in January.
