The Pinney Book Group hosts a discussion of We Need New Names by NoViolet Bulawayo. New attendees always welcome. Note: meeting is at Lake Edge Lutheran Church (4032 Monona Dr.).
Synopsis: In Zimbabwe, Darling and her friends steal guavas and grasp at memories of Before. Before their homes were destroyed by paramilitary policemen, before the school closed, before the fathers left for dangerous jobs abroad. But Darling has a chance to escape: she has an aunt in America. She travels to this new land in search of America's famous abundance only to find that her options as an immigrant are perilously few.
