Good Trouble Book Club for Middle School Students

WHEN: Saturday, April 24th, 4-4:45pm
WHERE: Dog-Eared Books loft

“Get in good trouble, necessary trouble” – Congressman & Civil Rights activist John Lewis

Not only are books fun, but some stories can also help us learn how to think about injustice, use our voices–and be good troublemakers! Join Tanvi and Trinity to chat about “New Kid” by Jerry Craft, a graphic novel about Jordan, a 7th grade boy who experiences culture shock when he moves to a new school where he’s one of the few Black kids in class. Books will be provided at no-cost to participants and can be picked up at Dog-Eared Books in advance of the book club.

To keep each other safe, masks and social distancing will be required. Light easy-to-eat-with-a-mask snacks will be provided.

The Good Trouble Book Club is presented in partnership with Dog-Eared Books and Ames Pride and sponsored by Ames Pride and the ISU Wesley Center Social Justice Grant.

Due to COVID-19, the Good Trouble Book Club is limited to 8 participants. This month’s book club is currently full. Please feel free to register for the waiting list.
