Kootenay Teen Book Club

Monique Gray Smith event!

Tuesday, April 4th, 1:30-2:30pm on Zoom.

Partner with your local school (middle-grade/high school), home school network, and/or Aboriginal Educator Coordinators. Monique Gray Smith is a powerful speaker, and she will give a presentation on the contents of her new book, the YA edition of Braiding Sweetgrass.

The class/students wouldn’t have to read the book to attend the event, but we do have a book club set (25 books) that is available for classes to borrow.  It is a thick book, but it consists of many short, stand-alone chapters. I talked to one teacher who said it is a great book for reluctant readers as kids can dip their toe into the waters without getting to overwhelmed. Lots of charming illustrations too which helps.
