Book Club: "The Girl Who Smiled Beads" by Clemantine Wamariya


Stop by our Athens Branch and take part in a lively discussion of The Girl Who Smiled Beads, an autobiographical nonfiction story by Clemantine Wamariya!

It was 1994, and in 100 days, more than 800,000 people would be murdered in Rwanda and millions more displaced. Six year-old Clemantine Wamariya and her sister Claire spent the next six years wandering through seven African countries searching for safety and hiding while witnessing unimaginable cruelty. At age twelve, Clemantine and Claire were granted asylum in the United States, and this book follows the sisters' journey. 

Open to the public, no registration required and new people are always welcome! Call the Athens Branch at 715-257-7292 for more information.
