Hoodland Book Group, Hoodland Public Library. The Hoodland Book Group will meet on Wednesday, September 18, 6:30 pm. The Sellout, by Paul Beatty, will be discussed. Contact Dianne Downey at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-622-3460. A biting satire about a young man’s isolated upbringing and the race trial that sends him to the Supreme Court, Paul Beatty’s The Sellout showcases a comic genius at the top of his game. It challenges the sacred tenets of the United States Constitution, urban life, the civil rights movement, the father-son relationship, and the holy grail of racial equality: the black Chinese restaurant.
