Book Discussion at the St. George Library Center of "Push" by Sapphire


Please join us at the St. George Library Center on Monday, February 28 at 6:30PM for a book discussion of Push by Sapphire.

Push is an electrifying first novel that shocks by its language, its circumstances, and its brutal honesty. Push recounts a young black street girl's horrendous and redemptive journey. For Precious Jones, 16 and pregnant with her father's child, miraculous hope appears and the world begins to open up for her when a courageous, determined teacher bullies, cajoles, and inspires her to learn to read, to define her own feelings and set them down in a diary.
