Kids' Book Club

One of the primary reasons we started this group was to build empathy in our children. Volunteering is only one of the ways in which we are tackling this. We have partnered with BookPeople to launch a book club for kids (ages 8-12)! The books we select will tackle issues that our children face every day--from struggles in school, to bullying, to learning to love and accept themselves and others just as they are. We meet on the third Saturday each month at 12:30 in the 2nd floor Kids' Amphitheater at BookPeople.  Hope to see you there and Keep Reading!


July’s Selection

Our next Book Club selection is Refugee by Alan Gratz.

"This unflinching novel follows three kids who must leave their homes to seek safety in three different eras of history--1939 Germany, 1994 Cuba, and 2015 Syria. Through journeys of loss and despair, each finds that hope can also be found. This is a powerful, important book that allows kids to step into the immigrant experience and feel the deep emotions that define it, from heartbreak to fear to determination. It could not be a better time for kids and adults to read such an empathy building book, hopefully together." — Meghan G., BookPeople
