For the third month of the Austin360 Book Club, we've chosen to read "Rising Out of Hatred" by Eli Saslow.

Saslow, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist for the Washington Post, focused the book around the story of Derek Black, a former white nationalist. Black's father was a Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, and his godfather is David Duke, another former Grand Wizard. The book tells the story of how Black, who was homeschooled, came to question the ideology of his father and his family.
