Join us and Jewell Parker Rhodes!

  • Dr. Jewell Parker Rhodes will be back to conclude our district read-along of her novels, Ghost Boys and Ninth Ward. Thank you to those of you who have joined us so far.

    Dr. Rhodes will talk with students about these 2 texts, the power of telling our own stories and discuss her work as a young adult author. She will help us wrap up our giveaway and kick off our Black Books Fair, in partnership with Third Place Books. A portion of the proceeds will go towards putting Black author titles in school libraries.

    Sign up HERE!
