The Rabbi Kraft Memorial Book Club was set up in memory of our dearly missed Rabbi Neil Kraft. Author and EHRS member, Debra Barnes, will be running the book club.
Join us for a lively discussion about books and other stuff! We will be discussing The Girl with the Louding Voice by Abi Daré. This book is a New York Times and Times Top 10 best seller. It has been shortlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize for Fiction, and recommended by Malala Yousafzai, Dolly Parton and members of the EHRS Book Club!
I don’t just want to be having any kind voice . . . I want a louding voice.
At fourteen, Adunni dreams of getting an education and giving her family a more comfortable home in her small Nigerian village. Instead, Adunni’s father sells her off to become the third wife of an old man. When tragedy strikes in her new home, Adunni flees to the wealthy enclaves of Lagos, where she becomes a house-girl to the cruel Big Madam, and prey to Big Madam’s husband. But despite her situation continuously going from bad to worse, Adunni refuses to let herself be silenced. And one day, someone hears her.
