August 2021 - Freedom Friends Book Club
via Zoom

Our August book selection is Take the Mic: Fictional Stories of Everyday Resistance, featuring tales written by multi-talented authors such as Bethany C. Morrow (who edited this collection), Jason Reynolds, Samira Ahmed, and many others.
This young adult anthology is comprised of thirteen fictional stories—in poems, prose, and art—that depict some of the wide-ranging ways that everyday people resist, swim upstream, and combat a world that is teeming with adversity. 
Whether the characters are standing up to online bullies, taking pride in their uniqueness, or standing up for people they care about, we all have something to learn from these diverse pieces. The stories in this anthology are nothing short of revolutionary, helping educate and open the eyes of readers in a fantastical way.

Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
