Good Trouble Book Club for
Middle School Students
WHEN: Saturday, July 24, 4 – 4:45 PM
WHERE: Dog-Eared Books loft
“Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and 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 Take Back the Block by Chrystal D. Giles, which explores community, gentrification, justice, and friendship. Readers will be introduced to Wes Henderson, a 6th grader who has the best style, and asks what it means to belong–to a place and a movement–and to fight for what you believe in.
Purchase a copy to read, or grab it from the library, and join us at Dog-Eared Books, Saturday, July 24, at 4 PM, for the book discussion. Please don’t let financial hardship be a barrier! Let us know if you need help purchasing your copy. Snacks will be provided.
Registration is required to participate in the book club. Seats are limited to 8
participants; register today to save a seat.
