Junior Historians Summer Reading Club (Advanced)

Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum

Elaine Evans 0 186 Article rating: No rating

Join the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum staff this summer in a virtual (via Zoom) reading club as we discuss books about the world we share. Our hope is to provide relevant books that allow youth to engage with our staff and their peers around topics that are important to them. Our promise is a safe space where youth can think, discuss their ideas, challenge assumptions, and (hopefully) grow a little based on what we read. We also promise to remember it’s summer and keep it fun!

Our Advanced book selection for June is John Green’s, Turtles All the Way Down. To learn more about the book, please see the Common Sense Media review.
