Great Stories Club: Finding Your Voice/: Encontrando Tu Voz

November 29, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm




This meeting of the Great Stories Club will continue the discussion of I am Alfonso Jones by Tony Medina. Although the graphic novel is fiction, the story reflects a reality for far too many young people. How might we retell the stories of victims of violence to emphasize their full humanity? Would you draw a picture, write a poem or story, make a song or something else? What will you include in your creation? We will have art supplies and writing materials available for participants during this meeting.

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.

Esta reunión del Great Stories Club continuará la discusión de Soy Alfonso Jones de Tony Medina. Aunque la novela gráfica es ficción, la historia refleja una realidad para demasiados jóvenes. ¿Cómo podríamos volver a contar las historias de las víctimas de la violencia para enfatizar su plena humanidad? ¿Harías un dibujo, escribirías un poema o una historia, harías una canción o algo más? ¿Qué incluirás en tu creación? Tendremos materiales de arte y materiales de escritura disponibles para los participantes durante esta reunión.

La Biblioteca Pawling tiene el honor de haber sido seleccionada como una de las 58 bibliotecas de todo el país para participar en el Great Stories Club, un programa de lectura y debate para adolescentes desatendidos. Estas becas competitivas son ofrecidas por la American Library Association (ALA) con el apoyo del National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).

La biblioteca ha recibido dos subvenciones Great Stories y se asociará con Camino al Éxito para llevar a los adolescentes de 13 años en adelante una serie de debates sobre libros en inglés y español.
