Join us for a Parent & Teen Virtual Book Club to Discuss THE BURNING with Laura Bates
Earlier this year The Teen and I both read a profoundly moving feminist novel titled The Burning that touched on a wide variety of issues that we are both very passionate about. So we are excited to get to host this online Virtual Book Club with the author, Laura Bates. It’s a free virtual event, but please follow this link to make reservations: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-burning-parentteen-book-club-with-author-laura-bates-tickets-105979304954

About this Event
An important book for readers of all ages in the #metoo era
Read The Burning together with your teen and then join Laura Bates, internationally renowned feminist and founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, for a book club discussion.
The discussion will be moderated by YA librarian Karen Jensen of School Library Journal‘s Teen Librarian Toolbox, and her teenage daughter.
The Burning is a powerful call to action, reminding all readers of the implications of sexism and the role we can each play in ending it.
Praise for The Burning:
“A smart, explosive examination of gender discrimination and its ramifications.” – Publishers Weekly
“A haunting rallying cry against sexism and bullying.” – Kirkus Reviews
“Will take readers on an emotional roller coaster.” – School Library Journal
