Read Woke!

Monday, April 1, 2019

Explore woke literature with Lewis & Clark Library! During April, we invite you to read a title from a community created list of woke literature (or choose your own) and submit a brief response. You’ll earn a book to keep and be entered into a drawing for a “Read Woke” t-shirt. Submit your responses at Lewis & Clark Library in Helena between April 1 and 30. A Woke Book Must: Challenge a social norm ? Give voice to the voiceless ? Provide information about a group that has been disenfranchised ? Seek to challenge the status quo ? Include a protagonist from an underrepresented or oppressed group · Cicely Lewis, Creator of the “Read Woke” movement Examples of "Woke" literature: *All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely *Dear Martin by Nic Stone *Girl Mans Up by M-E Girard *The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas *I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter by Erika L. Sánchez This program is in partnership with the YWCA's Stand Against Racism Events and is open to all
