Great Stories Club: Finding Your Voice/Encontrando Tu Voz

October 16, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm




Participants will have read Anger is a Gift  by Mark Oshiro prior to the meeting.  The discussion will be led bilingually to accommodate all participants. We will use the incidents in the book to address wider issues that the participants may have experienced or feel passionate about. If they are comfortable with the idea, the teens can share entries from their journals. At the end of the program, the teens will be given the third book.

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 will be partnering with Camino al Éxito to bring teens age 13 & up a book discussion series in English & Spanish.

Los participantes habrán leído La Ira es un Regalo de Mark Oshiro antes de la reunión. La discusión se llevará a cabo de forma bilingüe para acomodar a todos los participantes. Usaremos los incidentes del libro para abordar temas más amplios que los participantes podran haber experimentado o apasionados. Si se sienten cómodos, los adolescentes pueden compartir entradas de sus diarios. Al final del programa, los adolescentes recibirán el tercer libro.
