Event description

Description

Literature helps us explore ourselves and the world around us by sharing stories, raising questions, and presenting multiple perspectives. In this special literature book club series, Facing History offers teachers the opportunity to dive into four current pieces of young adult literature that can be taught in high school classrooms. Pairing these pieces of literature with non-fiction resources allow us to deepen exploration of critical themes. In this series for educators, literature has been chosen which explores themes of race, police violence and genocide, but also resiliency, hope, and the power of individual choices.

Join us for one session or the whole series. Each session will include a copy of the literature, a copy of related non-fiction resources from Facing History (as available in print), and a light dinner. Each session will be held at a different location in the general area of downtown Los Angeles.

  • Individual registration will be $30 per meeting (workshop fee waivers do not apply to this special event series).

  • A Book Club membership includes a copy of each of the books given at the workshop prior so that it can be read in advance if desired, and all four workshops. ($100 registration)
