Book Club: April

Brown Girl in the Ring by Nalo Hopkinson is this April's selection. "...a supernatural horror in a near-future urban setting. The core of Toronto has been abandoned by the wealthier citizens who fled to the 'burbs after severe rioting. The city centre is inhabited only by the formerly homeless and poor, now squatters, and is ruled by a gang known as "the posse." Rudy, the leader of the posse and a powerful obeah sorcerer, reigns from his office atop the CN Tower."
