For Curious Readers: The Society of Radical Readers
Do you enjoy reading? Do you want to stretch your reading muscles and perspectives? Join UUFE’s new book club, the Society of Radical Readers, on Friday, November 4th, at 7:00 pm. We will discuss All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely. This is a Young Adult (YA) book that has topped banned and challenged book lists with public and school libraries across the country since its publication (2015). The novel looks at a single event of police brutality from the two teenage protagonists’ perspectives. One boy is black and the other is white. Each chapter alternates perspectives between the two as they process the event, eventually leading them to a singular encounter at the end. Shop local bookstores (Amazon, if one must) or check it out from libraries and get ready to read a poignant book for our times at the first meeting of the Society of Radical Readers!
