We want to read those books.
The idea for a "Banned Book Club" comes from putting together two concepts.
First, it is important to preserve the rights of readers to choose their own reading material and embrace the exploration of all topics.
And second, that it is important to challenge the ideas that young adults have about the world.
Join us on Thursday evenings from 5pm to 6pm as we explore a world of controversy. The hope is that we can develop the parameters of the group together with participants.
The first suggested book is, "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian," by Sherman Alexie. This book contains strong language and mature themes but is written for a young adult audience.
Mature 13 year olds and up are welcome thursday afternoons, 5 – 6pm. Let us know you are coming, please sign up on SignUp Genius or come to our first meeting Thursday, May 15.
