The Between the Lines Book Club reads "The Final Revival of Opal & Nev" by Dawnie Walton. Books for this Zoom discussion can be picked up at the Dyer-Schererville branch a month prior to the event.

Fiercely independent, Opal is pushing against the grain in her style and attitude, Afro-punk before that term existed. Coming of age in Detroit, she can't imagine settling for a 9-to-5 job-- she believes she can be a star. When aspiring British singer/songwriter Neville Charles discovers her at a bar's amateur night, she takes him up on his offer to make rock music together for the fledgling Rivington Records. In early seventies New York City, just as she's finding her niche as part of a flamboyant and funky creative scene, a rival band signed to her label brandishes a Confederate flag at a promotional concert. Opal's bold protest and the violence that ensues set off a chain of events. Decades later, as Opal considers a 2016 reunion with Nev, music journalist S. Sunny Shelton seizes the chance to curate an oral history about her idols. As her interviews dig deeper, a nasty new allegation from an unexpected source threatens to blow up everything.
