Rescheduled due to weather - Thank you!
Book discussion - Ghost Boys, by Jewell Parker Rhodes
One of the most important books of the year, our top spring pick for middle grade, teens and adults. Join us for a discussion, led by children in our advance reader copy club, about the book.
Pre-order your copy now, and we will have it on Tuesday, April 17 for you to pick up. Then, join us a month later, on May 15 to discuss.
This important book should be read and discussed with others, in book clubs, classrooms, and dinner tables around the nation. The dreamlike quality of the narrative is captivating, moving back and forth in place and time as Jerome, a black seventh grader, sees himself deceased after being shot by a while police officer. The book is a welcome and needed addition to the current company of books to help facilitate discussion about racism – thoughtful, complex and ambitious, this book delivers and brings hope. I will put this book in people's hand and with all my heart, say "please read." - Kirsten
