Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah, led by Rev. Karl Lent.

Trevor Noah’s unlikely path from apartheid South Africa to the desk of The Daily Show began with a criminal act: his birth. Trevor was born to a white Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother when such a union was punishable by five years in prison. Young Trevor was kept indoors by his mother for most of the first five years of his life, living proof of his parent’s indiscretion. Finally, after the end of Apartheid, Trevor and his mother adapt to life in a changing South Africa where he learns what it means to make his own place in this world.

Limited number of books available. Available locally at Target or on Amazon.

Unbelievable (Movie Tie-in): The Story of Two Detectives’ Relentless Search for the Truth by T. Christian Miller and Ken Armstrong, led by Pastor Kirstie Engel.
