Join us for a Parent & Teen Virtual Book Club to Discuss THE BURNING with Laura Bates

Earlier this year The Teen and I both read a profoundly moving feminist novel titled The Burning that touched on a wide variety of issues that we are both very passionate about. So we are excited to get to host this online Virtual Book Club with the author, Laura Bates. It’s a free virtual event, but please follow this link to make reservations: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-burning-parentteen-book-club-with-author-laura-bates-tickets-105979304954

About this Event

An important book for readers of all ages in the #metoo era

Read The Burning together with your teen and then join Laura Bates, internationally renowned feminist and founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, for a book club discussion.

The discussion will be moderated by YA librarian Karen Jensen of School Library Journal‘s Teen Librarian Toolbox, and her teenage daughter.

The Burning is a powerful call to action, reminding all readers of the implications of sexism and the role we can each play in ending it.

Praise for The Burning:

“A smart, explosive examination of gender discrimination and its ramifications.” – Publishers Weekly

“A haunting rallying cry against sexism and bullying.” – Kirkus Reviews

“Will take readers on an emotional roller coaster.” – School Library Journal
