Racial Awareness Book Club Kits

For book clubs and discussion groups that are ready for a conversation about the issues and history of race in America, Westbank librarians have created Book Club Kits with well-reviewed titles, discussion prompts, and facilitation guidelines.
Each kit includes
  • at least eight copies of the title (online and audio versions may be available through our digital library),
  • suggested discussion questions,
  • suggested discussion guidelines, and
  • if available, a copy of the film.
Checkout period is 6-8 weeks.
