Join Ms. Perry and Ms. Robinson for Ladies Night Book Club on Thursday, November 17, at 6:30 p.m. This month's selection is Kia DuPree's Silenced. This book has a special connection to Northwest One because it takes place in our neighborhood -- Sursum Corda.
Tinka Hampton loves losing herself in novels and poems. But sooner or later reality sets in -- her mom, Nicola, is suddenly unemployed and fighting hard to keep her family from succumbing to poverty. With her sons getting involved with dealing and who knows what else, Nicola sees her daughter Tinka as her only hope. Tinka can't handle the pressure and soon finds herself in the arms of a dangerous and irresistible man. Will Tinka be able to follow her dreams or be stuck on D.C.'s streets forever?
