La Biblioteka’s book of the week - 

THE VANISHING HALF by Brit Bennett

This bestselling novel considers the lasting influence of the past as it shapes a person's decisions, desires, and expectations, and explores some of the multiple reasons and realms in which people sometimes feel pulled to live as something other than their origins.


Weaving together multiple strands and generations of this family, from the Deep South to California, from the 1950s to the 1990s, Brit Bennett produces a story that is at once a riveting, emotional family story and a brilliant exploration of the American history of passing.


La Biblioteka has a link to a special recorded event with Brit in conversion with Sheffield based author Yvonne Battle-Felton for those that buy the paperback in the shop.
