821 Book Club: February 2018

The 821 Book club is back! During the month of February, join us in reading about race and ethnicity issues worldwide as part of our 821 Book Club. We have included a list of books ranging from fiction to nonfiction, graphic novels and even news articles that are connected to the theme. This list also includes books for children and teenagers to read as well!

Choose one of these choices or two of them (maybe all of them), and expand your roots to the world through literature!
