VIRTUAL: Many Voices: Middle School Book Group: 1919

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Virtual & Offsite
Virtual Program
Meet virtually with students in grades 5-8 as we share thoughts and opinions on this month's book: 1919 by Eve L. Ewing.

The Chicago Race Riot of 1919, the most intense of the riots that comprised the “Red Summer” of violence across the nation’s cities, is an event that has shaped the last century but is widely unknown. In 1919, award-winning poet Eve L. Ewing explores the story of this event—which lasted eight days and resulted in thirty-eight deaths and almost 500 injuries—through poems recounting the stories of everyday people trying to survive and thrive in the city. Ewing uses speculative and Afrofuturist lenses to recast history, and illuminates the thin line between the past and the present.

This month's Middle School Book Group is part of Many Voices Many Stories, Oak Park's community summer read. If you cannot make it to this book discussion, a second virtual book discussion will be available on Saturday, August 15 from 3 to 4 pm.

REGISTER IN ZOOM NOW: After you register, you will receive a specific Zoom link to join the event.
