Equity Team Book Club

  • This year we are going to have a Leesville Community Book Club that is open to parents, students, and teachers from K-12.  We will be reading the Young Adult version of Stamped by Ibram X. Kendi and Jason Reynolds.  

    Our timeline is to read the book club throughout September and then have our first meeting in October.  The first meeting date will be set once the information from the sign-up is gathered.  The book is 5 sections, so we will meet once a month (October 2020 - March 2021) virtually to discuss each section of the book.  The flyer has a Google Form to sign up and a QR code to buy the book from Quail Ridge Bookstore.
    If you have any questions about this book club please contact one of our equity team members:
