#ReinventStockton Summer Book Club at the Maya Angelou Library
The #ReinventStockton Summer Book Club is back! In collaboration with the Library’s Summer Reading Program Councilman Michael Tubbs will host a weekly book club at the Maya Angelou Library for students entering the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. #ReinventStockton Summer Book Club will focus on the book Buck: A Memoir by M.K. Asante. Buck is a coming-of-age story set in the wilds of urban America. According to a Booklist starred review: “This is an inspiring story about perseverance and finding purpose that is sure to appeal to readers interested in hip-hop, black studies, and American pop culture in general.”
Each meeting will give the students an opportunity to talk about the major themes in the book and participate in related activities. Meetings will be held on Wednesdays from 1:30-3 pm from June 25 through July 30, 2013. Registration is not required. Copies of the book will be available for checkout – with a library card -- at the Maya Angelou Library at the end of May.
