The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace by Jeff Hobbs

A heartfelt, and riveting biography of the short life of a talented young African-American man who escapes the slums of Newark for Yale University only to succumb to the dangers of the streets and of one's own nature when he returns home. The story is about the tragic life of one singular brilliant young man. His end, a violent one, is heartbreaking and powerful and unforgettable.

The South St. Paul Book Discussion group has been enjoying lively discourse on books since January 2000. The group meets the 2nd Thursday of the month from 7-8:30 pm. Everyone is welcome! The group meets in the library meeting room, and will often host an author or speaker to further enhance that month’s book selection.

Anyone interested in joining a book club is encouraged to come and meet other avid readers!
