“Easy reads with a tough message,” this is a book club of fiction titles with a social justice message. First two titles will be The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, and All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely. Participants will be asked to suggest additional titles for discussion and for a reading list to make available to all PLATO members at the end of the session. The intention of the book club is to simply to offer another vehicle for educating ourselves – heightening our awareness – of situation facing people outside the dominant white community and promoting discussion of difficult issues through common reads.
