Banned Book Club- The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

Banned Book Club- The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian In-Person

[For teens ages 13-17] Book banning is sadly nothing new, and cases of censorship are growing more and more widespread throughout the US. Librarians oppose censorship and believe that open, honest conversation about difficult material is an alternative to book banning. Join Miss Leah for Banned Book Club, a book club designed for teens to discuss challenged materials from the 1900s to the present. We will read a mixture of classics, contemporary fiction, and graphic novels.
