This book club is a feature of Parents Across America’s  project on the Impact of Poverty and Race on Educational Opportunity.

We’re really excited about our first book club session on March 29 with author P.L. Thomas, called the “conscience of American education” by Diane Ravitch. We’ll be discussing Dr. Thomas’s newest book, “Beware the Roadbuilders,” which takes a social justice lens to many favorite books and genres including James Baldwin, Barbara Kingsolver, Isaac Asimov, zombies and superheroes.

First book club date: Tuesday, March 29 at 8 pm ET Register here! 

We’re using Eventbrite for book club registration and the Zoom meeting program for the book club itself.

Once you register for this session via Eventbrite, we will send you the log-in information for the Zoom meeting.

You will need to download the free Zoom program at zoom.us.

Buy the book!

You can try your local library for a free copy or you can just buy the book. It’s $9.99 on Kindle. If you don’t have a Kindle, you can get a free app from Amazon to read a Kindle book on your phone or tablet.

This book club is a feature of our project on the Impact of Poverty and Race on Educational Opportunity. We are looking forward to the discussion.
