The November meeting of Northwest Mississippi Community College’s Reading Roundtable, made possible with funds from Sycamore Bank, will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 27 at 2 p.m., in the R.C. Pugh Library on the Senatobia campus. Leading this month’s discussion will be Northwest Police Officer Derek Brauer.
Tajon works hard and tries his best to be good. He does OK in school. He has plans. He’s determined. Tajon is the kind of son who cares about his family. He’s the kind of brother who stands up for his sister. He’s the kind of kid who dreams big dreams to get himself and those he loves up and out of the hood. The Day Tajon Got Shot,written by 10 teenage girls in Washington, D.C., thoughtfully explores issues of race, violence, loyalty, and justice in a community torn apart but seeking connection.
The purpose of the program is to provide a forum to read and discuss a variety of books during the course of every semester. Meetings are held on the last Tuesday of each month.
Participants must fill out a registration form, and those wishing to purchase a copy of the book being discussed may do so for $5. Personal or library copies may also be used.
