Finding Your Voice Teen Book Club

Meets the 4th Thursday of the month 
4 pm - 5 pm
Waterman Triangle Park

For young people ages going into grades 7th-12th, or ages 12-18.

Registration required.

Finding Your Voice Book Club focuses on books about young people finding their voice and ways to speak up for themselves. Through the books, teens have a chance to have a mirror to explore their own experiences or a window to learn about others’ experiences. By sharing experiences, we hope to gain empathy for others and be inspired by them to be advocates for themselves and the injustices we see in our world.
