Richland Library is inviting local teens to be part of the conversation and share their thoughts on racism in the United States.
Register now for the virtual Let’s Talk Race: Teen Book Group from 3 – 4:30 p.m., Saturday, March 6 and receive a free hardcover copy of “Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You” by Dr. Ibram X. Kendi and Jason Reynolds through the pick-up window or curbside service at any library location. Digital copies are also available in our collection via Overdrive in eBook and eAudiobook formats with a library card.
Specifically designed for teens ages 12-18, the upcoming online program provides a safe space for dialogue. It features both break-out sessions and a larger group discussion, led by the library’s Let’s Talk Race team.
Throughout the gripping, fast-paced and energizing narrative, Reynolds shines a light on the many insidious forms of racist ideas and on ways that readers can identify and stamp out racist thoughts in their daily lives. “Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You” is a remarkable reimagining of Kendi’s National Book Award-winning “Stamped from the Beginning.”
The Let’s Talk Race: Teen Book Group is part of the library’s ongoing Let’s Talk Race community initiative. Discover additional resources about race, equity and inclusion at richlandlibrary.com/race.
