Intercultural Reading Circles

Book Club for Adults:

Gives community members an opportunity to participate in intellectual dialogue, where people of all racial and ethical backgrounds sit down together to discuss selected books on race-related topics. The reading circle also helps to create new friendships and offers an intimate way for individuals of diverse backgrounds to better understand each other.

For Youth:

The YWCA takes reading circles into local elementary schools to discuss age appropriate short stories or books centered around racism and prejudice. Children have the opportunity to discuss these topics and participate in fun diversity activities.
