Book Club: "Such a Fun Age" by Kiley Reid

Do you love to talk about what you’re reading? Join a book club to share your thoughts and hear what others have to say about books that spark discussion, curiosity, and debate!

Join the discussion as we go over Kiley Reid's Such a Fun Age.

In the midst of a family crisis one late evening, white blogger Alix Chamberlain calls her African American babysitter, Emira, asking her to take toddler Briar to the local market for distraction. There, the security guard accuses Emira of kidnapping Briar, and Alix's efforts to right the situation turn out to be good intentions selfishly mismanaged. Longlisted for the 2020 Booker Prize and a finalist for the 2020 NAACP Image Award, this book explores race, class, and privilege with lightness and verve.
