Weekly Book Club Meeting #1

So You Want to Talk About Race by ljeoma Oluo

For Professional Young Performers, Ages 12-18

Book club has been going strong for the past three months. In April, we pondered our personal legend with The Alchemist and in May, we learned about racial injustice and finding our voice in The Hate U Give. In July, we read Ray Bradbury's acclaimed novel Fahrenheit 451. Book club members have now selected the book So You Want to Talk About Race by ljeoma Oluo. If you like to read, or just need some social connection. Come join the book club.
