Our pick for April 2021 is The Death of Vivek Oji by Akwaeke Emezi.
The Vox Book Club is linking to Bookshop.org to support local and independent booksellers.
Here’s how the Vox Book Club works: Every month, we pick a book. Throughout the month, we publish discussion posts containing thoughts and questions from Vox book critic Constance Grady, but we also have comments turned on and moderated so you can share your thoughts, too. Talk among yourselves! Post your opinions and questions! Or use our discussion posts as a jumping-off point for (socially distanced) discussions with your friends and family. And at the end of the month, we gather on Zoom for a virtual live discussion.
Our pick for April 2021 is Akwaeke Emezi’s The Death of Vivek Oji. Constance will host a live discussion of the book on Thursday, April 29, with Emezi. Sign up here to be notified about new book selections, discussions, and related live events.
Here’s the full Vox Book Club schedule for April 2021:
Friday, April 16: Discussion post on The Death of Vivek Oji published to Vox.com
Thursday, April 29: Virtual live event with author Akwaeke Emezi at 5 pm ET. RSVP here.
