Parent Child Book Club

Join us for Cascadia’s first parent/child book club hosted by our librarian Merrick Bodmer and the staff Race and Equity team.

The theme for the first book will be racial equity. You can either read the adult book and participate in an adult-only discussion OR read the middle grade novel with your child and participate in the parent/child book discussion. The kid book selected is recommended for ages 8 and up, but you know your kids best! You can also read both books and float between discussion groups. We will discuss issues of racial bias, injustice and how we can dismantle systems of racism.

Who: You and your Cascadia student (probably for grades 3 and up)

What: Read Blended by Sharon Draper or How to be an Anti-Racist by Ibram X Kendi

Where: Cascadia Library

When: Thursday, March 5th, 6-7:30 pm

Why: Because these conversations are essential in recognizing and dismantling racism.
