Virtual Book Club - Hosted by the Village of Ardsley Multicultural, Diversity and Inclusion Committee and the Ardsley Public Library - Sunday, October 18
The Ardsley Multicultural, Diversity and Inclusion Committee & the Ardsley Public Library are continuing our virtual book club. We have selected stories designed to spark discussion and reflection about race, identity, orientation, equity, community, and understanding.
We encourage community members of all ages to participate in our virtual book club! We will clarify which texts are appropriate for what age groups in our correspondence. Whenever possible, we will pick books that have multiple formats (movies, websites, etc.) so we can encourage as much community participation as possible engaged in this conversation.
We have two texts for October 2020.
Text one is If I Ever Get Out of Here by Eric Gainsworth. This text is recommended for readers ages 11 and up. The library has two versions of the book available: text as published and electronic audiobook.
Text two is Thunder Boy, Jr. by Sherman Alexie and Yuyi Morales. This book is recommended for readers ages 2-10. We will share this book as a 'read aloud' during the book club meeting.
Lastly, you are welcome to join in the conversation without reading the book.
We will discuss If I Ever Get Out of Here in small groups. Thunder Boy, Jr. will be a read-aloud selection with some discussion (depending on the age and makeup of the readers).
If you would like to reserve a copy, please call (914) 693-6636 or email
the Ardsley Public Library.
Our discussion of the stories will be a virtual event and registration is required. The discussion will occur on Sunday October 18, at 4:00 PM over Zoom. A link to the event will be sent out 24 hours prior to the event.
