TxWes Reads The Hate U Give

The West Library will sponsor TXWES Reads One Book again this year. This year’s book is The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. The purpose of the one-book program is to bring the Texas Wesleyan community together and to encourage students, staff and faculty to join together to read and discuss the same book.

An official kick off of the program will be Sept. 18 during free period on the lawn between the Library and Dora’s. There will be guest readers presenting quotes from the book and as well as interesting facts about the author.
