The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis. P.A.C.T Book Club. In 1923, fifteen-year-old Hattie Shepherd, swept up by the tides of the Great Migration, flees Georgia and heads north, and settles in Philadelphia to build a better life. She loses her firstborn twins and gives birth to nine more children, whose lives tell the story of a mother’s monumental courage—and a nation's tumultuous journey.
