Trevor Noah is a popular comedian and the host of the Daily Show on Comedy Central. This month we will meet to discuss his memoir, Born A Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood. The book details Noah's life growing up in post-apartheid South Africa. As the light-skinned product of a white father and black mother, he never fit well into the racial schemes introduced after apartheid. Even under apartheid there was trouble fitting in, because it was a crime for him to be born as a mixed race baby (hence the title of the book).

Looking forward to see you all!
