We are all more alike than we are different.

Join The End bookstore family for a special event to spread kindness so hate can’t win with local middle grade author and educator, Dana Kramaroff.

Light snacks and delicious decaf Nowhere coffee will be served. 

Target ages for the book is 10 & up, but all are welcome. This event is free, and a book purchase is not required. 

About the book: 

A Jewish boy’s bravery and kindness are tested after an antisemitic attack on his middle school in this rousing novel in verse.
Ever since twelve-year-old Josh Kline found an antisemitic note in his family’s mailbox in third grade, he has felt uncomfortable about his Jewish identity. At a new school where he’s pretty sure he’s the only Jew, he’s hoping to just keep religion out of everything . . . until the morning someone sprays swastikas all over the building. That’s when everything changes.

In one of the school counseling groups set up in response to the attack, Josh finally reveals that he is Jewish, and quickly finds out there’s more to the other kids in his grade too: All of them have their own struggles. Maybe Josh can do something to help—to “repair the world” as his rabbi teaches, by starting a Do More club to spread kindness. But making a difference is never simple, even when you have new friends by your side.
