This Classrooms Without Borders book club will be offered weekly on Wednesdays at 4 pm on Zoom. RSVP each week to receive to link.
What does it mean to be a citizen? This summer book club for high school students will read Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine. Together, we will think about how each of us is a citizen in many different ways. With CWB Resident Teaching Artist Susan Stein, we will explore and talk about our selves and our historical selves, personal and political, while looking at Rankine’s unique frame by frame book that asks us to consider microaggressions and the unseen ways racism lives in our society. Part prose poem, part journal entry, part photographs, we will consider the way each text we encounter can be both window and mirror.
