Now meeting at both 11:00am and 5:30pm!
Join the Broad Street Readers for a discussion of Reading With Patrick, Michelle Kuo’s account of her relationship with a former student who is jailed for murder.
Praise for Reading With Patrick:
“Honest, thoughtful, and humane, Kuo’s book is not only a testament to a remarkable friendship, but a must-read for anyone interested in social justice and race in America. Thoughtfully provocative reading.”—Kirkus Reviews
“This memoir of teaching literature in one of the poorest counties in America is a reminder of how literacy changes lives. Highly recommended.”—Library Journal (starred review)
“This book is special and could not be more right on time. It’s an absorbing, tender, and surprisingly honest examination of race and privilege in America that helps articulate what is often lost, seemingly intentionally, in national debates over criminal justice and education: the inner life and imagination of a young person.”—Wes Moore, author of The Other Wes Moore
