This new, quarterly book club aims to combine diverse middle grade fiction, youth readers and library staff, discussion and non-fiction supporting resources into one great C.U.P. of growing understanding for ourselves and our Evanston community!
During fall's book club, Ms. Kellye and Ms. Katy will guide youth readers in a discussion of Lisa Moore Ramée's #ownvoices debut title, A Good Kind of Trouble*, centered around family, friends and leaning into your discomfort to do what's right.
And in an effort to encourage the growth of your own personal, diverse library, those who register for this event are welcome to pick up a personal copy of the book at either the Robert Crown branch or Main library.
To help curb the spread of COVID-19, this book discussion will be conducted via Zoom. Be sure to include your email when registering so that you can be invited to the call!
Registration required. Must be an Evanston resident or attend school in District 65 to participate.
*The title refers to the guidance the late congressman and civil rights activist John Lewis offered those seeking racial justice- "Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble." – A tweet from June 2018
