About the event
The Yellow Springs Public Library, in partnership with YS Pride, presents the 2022 YS Pride June Book Club featuring the novel “The Henna Wars.” Set in Dublin, the book follows Nishat, a Bangladeshi teenager who comes out as a lesbian while in high school. The book was included on Time's list of the "100 Best Young Adult Books of All Time.”
Teens are encouraged to participate and will be able to check out “The Henna Wars” from the YS Library to prepare for the book club event.
During the Book Club, attendees will have the opportunity to engage in a Q&A Discussion about “The Henna Wars,” and participate in an interactive Henna Design workshop.
Read the story. Discuss the journey. Experience the culture.
*Refreshments will be served.
If you know of any teens who would enjoy this discussion, or the opportunity to participate in an interactive Henna exercise, please share this event with them.
