Like to read and talk about social justice? Come join Social Justice Book Club! A monthly book club that encourages members to read any book that within falls within a specific theme. In honor of National Poetry Month, the theme for April will be focused on poets, poetry, and verse.

Suggested titles to explore:


Fiction in Verse:


  • Get lit rising : Words ignite. Claim your poem. Claim your life. / Diane Luby Lane and the Get Lit Players

Social Justice Book Club is an opportunity for young people to get together to share knowledge and deepen our analysis of power in the world today. We will meet on the third Tuesday of each month, unless otherwise specified. Snacks provided! For youth ages 12 to 18. Questions? Call Linda, teen services librarian, at 510-238-3400.
