Emily Buehler O’Leary (Zumbrota-Mazeppa high school graduate and Justice and Peace Studies faculty at the University of St. Thomas), Amanda Peters (Zumbrota-Mazeppa high school graduate and Lead Teacher and Instructional Technology Coach for Intermediate School District 917), and Youth Services Librarian Paula Steigerwald are supporting conversations on books that address racism and racial justice this summer. All conversations will be held virtually through Zoom:
July: Teens and parents/adult co-readers will read The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, and hold discussions on Wednesday nights in July.
August: All are welcome to read the One Book One Minnesota book, A Good Time for the Truth: Race in Minnesota, a collection of essays by some of MN’s amazing writers of color. We will hold two community discussions in August about this text.
