Submitted by Jennifer Tidball

The Hate U Give

A limited number of tickets are still available for the Thursday, April 11, lecture by "The Hate U Give" author Angie Thomas. The lecture is at 7 p.m. in McCain Auditorium. 

The lecture is free and open to the public, but tickets will be required and must be picked up in person. University students, faculty and staff are able to pick up an individual ticket from the McCain box office with a valid K-State photo ID until all tickets are distributed. The McCain box office is open from noon to 4 p.m. Tuesday to Friday.  

Community members are still able to pick up individual tickets at the Manhattan Public Library from a limited number provided to the library until all tickets are distributed.  

Overflow seating will be available where visitors and members of the university and community can watch a live video stream of Thomas' lecture. Overflow locations in Manhattan will include the Cottonwood Room and the Flint Hills Room in the K-State Student Union and the Manhattan Public Library. Additional overflow locations include the Great Plains Room at the K-State Olathe campus and Room 119 in the Technology Center building at the K-State Polytechnic campus.   

To reserve seating for a group of 10 or more in one of the overflow areas, contact ksbn@k-state.edu by Tuesday, April 9. The K-State Book Network, or KSBN, will then confirm the reservation and provide additional directions. Other questions about the event may be directed to the KSBN email address. 

Thomas, author of Kansas State University's 2018 common book "The Hate U Give," will talk about activism and the themes of her best-selling novel during her lecture, "The Hate U Give: Finding Your Activism and Turning the Personal into the Political." 

"The Hate U Give" is an award-winning novel that has been adapted to a major motion picture movie. Thomas recently published her second novel, "On the Come Up."
