119: Samira Ahmed's INTERNMENT -- April Unabridged Book Club

Updated: Jul 22, 2020

For our April Unabridged Book Club episode and discussion, we talk about Samira Ahmed's near-future YA literature novel, Internment (which was also our buddy read on Instagram in March!), and we make connections to other works including Mark Oshiro’s Anger Is a Gift, George Takei’s They Called Us Enemy, and Nic Stone’s Dear Martin. We end the episode by discussing some things that are helping us cope during this challenging time for our Give Me One. Join us all month on social media as we continue this discussion about Ahmed's Internment!
