One Book One Bronx is a new style book club that gets people reading again. We engage in a literary “call and response” by reading and discussing books that inspire, encourage, and delight readers.
Saturdays September 23, 30 & October 7, 1:00 – 2:30pm
St. James Park Recreation Center, 2530 Jerome Ave, Bronx, NY
Join us when One Book One Bronx reads and discusses The Education of Margot Sanchez by Lilliam Rivera in St. James Park. Free to participate but please register.
Our book clubs bring neighbors and family together to read and discuss one book that reflects that community. Reading together works as a stepping stone to strengthen literacy and build reading comprehension. It’s “family,” supplemented with instruction, that will create a culture of reading for pleasure. Each session is led by a teaching-artist.
The Literary Freedom Project believes that cultural identity is a fundamental cornerstone in the development of smart, creative, and focused young people. Culture, on which families and communities are sustained and strengthened, is honed through a mix immersive reading –academic, vocational, and pleasure.
