CURE Hosts Book Club Family Event
CURE (The Coalition for Understanding Racism through Education) is offering a 5-week summer book club for kids ages 3-6 (pre-K to 1st grade) and their parents on Saturdays from 3-4pm at the Larchmont Public Library, 121 Larchmont Avenue on June 4, 11, 18, 25 and July 9.
Each week, families will participate in story time and accompanying activities, facilitated by community leaders, based on themes such as Why People Look Different, What is Racism and How We Can Change the World. The goal is for participants to have fun while learning by example how to comfortably and consistently talk about race and racism at home.
CURE will host a parents-only session via Zoom before and after the 5-week series to help parents feel more comfortable guiding conversations that the book club may prompt. Dates and information about these sessions will be provided to registrants.
This summer series is a pilot program, and as such, CURE will cover all costs and allow families to participate for free. Registration is only required once to attend all dates in the 5-week series. While this first book club is being hosted for kids ages 3-6 (pre-K to 1st grade), CURE will be organizing future book clubs targeting all age ranges.
CURE’s Anti-Racist Book Club for Young Families program is built upon the One Million Talks campaign, which asks parents to make a pledge to talk about race and racism with their children early and often in a commitment to raising an anti-racist generation.
All books read during this series have been selected by The Humble Bumble, and will be available for purchase through this New Rochelle-based, Black and female-owned independent bookseller.
