Stamped Book Discussion: Middle Schoolers & Caregivers

Stamped: Racism, Anti-Racism, and You by Jason Reynolds has been on the NYT Bestseller List for 15 weeks and had to go into a second printing because of such a high demand after George Floyd's murder on May 25th and the subsequent protests. Are you someone who picked this book up since then? Are you waiting for your copy to arrive or want to read it but can't get it? Do you want to discuss it with other people who have read it? 

Welcome to Stamped Book Club! Join your RPL librarians for a discussion about Jason Reynolds's young reader's edition. This discussion is for teens in grades 6-8 and their caregivers.  Discussions for other ages are available: high schoolers or adults.

A book will be provided for families that don't already have one. Please have your library card ready when you sign up, so that we can check the book out to you and have you schedule a pick-up time.

This is an online event via Zoom. An invite will be sent at least an hour prior to the start of the program to the email given at registration. Be sure to check your spam box if the invite does not appear in your inbox.


Can't make it but still want to read the book? Place a hold on Stamped by Reynolds or the original work by Ibram X. Kendi titled Stamped from the Beginning and get them through curbside pickup.
