Community Book Club
We had a wonderful community turnout at our first book club event. We have another book club discussion set for Thursday Nov. 14th from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Staff Room at Point Grey Secondary School (5350 East Blvd). The focus of this book club discussion will be on gender, harassment and bullying in schools and classrooms.
Our speaker for the event is Dr. Elizabeth Meyers (California Polytechnical State University).
The format will be similar to our first book club meeting, where our speaker will set a context for the topic in relationship to our chosen book, The Absolute True Diary of a Part-time Indian. We will then break in to book club discussion groups to talk about themes of the book and the role of educators, parents, and community to address the issue. We will then conclude with our guest speaker who address strategies to support students.
Please join us even if you have not finished reading the book. There are opportunities for all to take part in discussions.
Look forward to seeing you there.
