The Read Woke Challenge Is Coming!

The library will kick off our latest school-wide reading challenge next September. What is a "Woke Book," you ask?

A Woke Book must:

  • Challenge a social norm
  • Give voice to the voiceless
  • Provide information about a group that has been disenfranchised
  • Seek to challenge the status quo
  • Have a protagonist from an underrepresented or oppressed group

More details will be announced next fall, but Ms Hersh is compiling a list of suggested titles from our library, in case you'd like to get a jump on reading any of them.

Anyone with an Austin ISD email can view this list of Woke Books that will be available at the Lanier Library in the Fall.  Or, check out your local public library this summer!
