April 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

For this month’s meeting of the Deeper Than Our Skins series, we will be reading and talking about Between The World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. Using the author’s letter to his son as inspiration, participants will be asked to write a letter to their future selves. Copies of the book are available in both English and Spanish.

The Pawling Library is honored to have been selected as one of 58 libraries nationwide to take part in the Great Stories Club, a reading and discussion program for underserved teens. These competitive grants are offered by the American Library Association (ALA) with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). The Library has received two Great Stories Grants and is partnering with Camino al Éxito to bring teens age 13 & up a book discussion series in English & Spanish.

Para la reunión de este mes de la serie Deeper Than Our Skins, leeremos y hablaremos sobre Between The World and Me de Ta-Nehisi Coates. Utilizando la carta del autor a su hijo como inspiración, se pedirá a los participantes que escriban una carta a su yo futuro. Copias del libro están disponibles tanto en inglés como en español.
