Community is at the heart of Brighton Green, and while we share our much-loved neighborhood, we all come from different life-experiences and backgrounds that make us unique. In an effort to learn about each other, we are launching the Brighton Green Book Club, which focuses on stories and voices from around the world.
July Book: Homegoing
Join us for our first meeting as we read Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi, a novel that weaves together the lives of two sisters, detailing stories from the slave trade, family, love and loss in Africa and the United States. We look forward to getting to know more about our neighbors and strengthening our community through the magic of reading.
