April is Stress Awareness month! Join Anna Bradley at the Lewis & Clark Library each Friday in April to learn how stress impacts our bodies and minds. She will share some basic yogic tools like movement, breathing techniques, and meditation practices you can apply to your daily life. Free and open to the public.

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
