Freedom Reads Book Club
Through our partnership with Reginald Dwayne Betts and Freedom Reads, we sponsor a monthly book club during the school year. Each month we share free copies of a selected book through our lottery and make available discussion questions and student reflection journals for teacher use (linked below).
Our goal is to increase access to meaningful and engaging books for students, encourage reading and honest dialogue around contemporary fiction that delves into the issues young people in confinement face, and help schools expand their libraries.
