Book Club Opportunity
We're excited to announce our new partnership with Reginald Dwayne Betts and the Million Book Project. Through this partnership, each month we will be sharing free copies of a selected book, discussion questions and student reflection journals. These guides will be similar to the materials we developed over the summer to go along with Just Mercy.
Our goal is to increase access to meaningful and engaging books for your students, encourage reading and honest dialogue around contemporary fiction that delves into issues that young people in confinement face, and help you expand your school libraries. The first book, and our October selection is Dwayne Betts’ recent book of poetry, Felon. Other books will include: Insurrections, by Rion Almicar Scott, Children of Blood and Bones, by Tomi Adeyemi, Men We Reaped, by Jesymn Ward, Poet X, by Elizabeth Acevedo and Heavy, by Kiese Laymon.
Each month, we will announce the name of the selected book and send out a registration form to participate in our lottery. We anticipate providing a classroom set of books to fifteen to twenty sites each month.
