Feedback form is now closed.
A group of Denver Public Library African American librarians started a non-traditional book club called R.A.D.A.: Read. Awareness. Dialogue. Action, to achieve footing within the Denver community. The R.A.D.A. is bold in its delivery by promoting reading for social consciousness, encouraging an exchange of ideas, and community sharing. The selected books (identified in this program presentation) have enabled lively discussion and very enriching sharing. R.A.D.A.'s goal is to continue this diverse and inclusive book club approach. This program overview highlights the promotion, operation and impact of R.A.D.A., as well as suggestions for forming a similar book club at your library.
