Gespräch: Let's Talk About Books With Reggie - On The Come Up - Carl-Schurz-Haus/Deutsch-Amerikanisches Institut (DAI) Freiburg e.V. - Freiburg

Sixteen-year-old Bri wants to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. Or at least make it out of her neighborhood one day. But now that her mom has unexpectedly lost her job, food banks and shutoff notices are as much a part of Bri’s life as beats and rhymes. With bills piling up and homelessness staring her family down, Bri no longer just wants to make it – she has to make it. On the Come Up is Angie Thomas’s homage to hip-hop. It is the story of fighting for your dreams, even as the odds are against you; of the struggle to become who you are and not who everyone expects you to be; and of the desperate realities of poor and working-class black families.There’s no need to have read the book in order to attend!Eintritt: € 3 / 2 ermäßigt / CSH-Mitglieder freiVeranstaltungssprache: Englisch
