A community of readers dedicated to exploring diverse literature of all kinds. 

Each month, a theme is selected related to an aspect of diversity. We then choose an adult selection, a young adult or middle grade selection, and a handful of picture books based on that theme. In choosing more than one selection, our readers have the option to read a book that best suits their entry point for discussions about that topic.

From there we discuss the books as they relate to the topic, explore our own ideas and think deeply about the impact we have in what we choose to engage with, in our lives.
