Freedom Reads Book Club

Through our partnership with Reginald Dwayne Betts and Freedom Reads, we will be sponsoring monthly book clubs during the 2020-21 school year. Each month we will share free copies of a selected book through our lottery and will make available discussion questions and student reflection journals for teacher use. 

Our goal is to increase access to meaningful and engaging books for students, encourage reading and honest dialogue around contemporary fiction that delves into issues that young people in confinement face, and help schools expand their libraries.
