Summer Reading Club: The Green Bicycle (Virtual)

Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum

How determined are you to get what you really want? In The Green Bicycle by Haifaa al Mansour, eleven-year-old Saudi Arabian girl, Wadjda, is driven to get her hands on a green bicycle. Eager for the independence and opportunity to race her friends, the bicycle represents so much more than transportation. Caught between what is expected of her and her own drive, Wadjda will stop at nothing to achieve her goal. Join the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum's Summer Reading Club on Monday, August 16 to discuss this story filled with positive messages on determination, friendship, and following your dreams.
