A New Logo and a New Website
There’s no way that Gram’s Book Club could do this better so II’m sharing through my blog and on Facebook. NEA is featuring an interactive resource calendar which you can find here https://www.readacrossamerica.org with suggestions for different age groups and lesson ideas from the books. The August 2019 book was All Are Welcome Here by Alexandra Penfold. The June 2020 choice is Lubna and Pebble by Wendy Meddour. A middle grade choice is The Hero Next Door by Olugbemisole Rhuday-Perkovich. It’s a collection of middle grade short stories from some of the best known diverse book authors.
Cliff Fukuda, Read Across America Advisory Committee member and a history teacher at Aiea High School in Aiea, Hawaii explains that “The books featured in the calendar are only the tip of the iceberg of diverse literature and diverse authors.”
