Hi Book Lovers!  You are invited to participate in our College of Education Elementary Book Club.
We will be meeting one Sunday per month to discuss a new book. 

October book: Harbor Me by Jacqueline Woodson

It all starts when six kids have to meet for a weekly chat–by themselves, with no adults to listen in. There, in the room they soon dub the ARTT Room (short for “A Room to Talk”), they discover it’s safe to talk about what’s bothering them–everything from Esteban’s father’s deportation and Haley’s father’s incarceration to Amari’s fears of racial profiling and Ashton’s adjustment to his changing family fortunes. When the six are together, they can express the feelings and fears they have to hide from the rest of the world. And together, they can grow braver and more ready for the rest of their lives.  

Pick up your book at the reception desk in N110 LC.

  • The first 25 students to sign up will be eligible to get a free book. 
  • Participation in this book club is free, however, if you register and don’t attend our book club  meeting, we will charge your UBill for the cost of the book (~$20.00). This includes last minute calls that you are sick.
