Friday Morning Book Group - The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett

Friday Morning Book Group - The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett In-Person

The Vanishing Half follows the lives of two twin girls, both light-skinned Black girls, who run away from home at the age of sixteen. Desiree marries a dark-skinned Black man and has a child, while Stella lives her life passing as white. The book tracks their lives across generations, as their lives branch away from each other and yet remain intertwined. It's a story that explores the intricacies of identity, family and race in a provocative but compassionate way.
