Did you know that Bloomfield Hills High School has a Community Book Club meeting on May 16 at 3:30 p.m.? Initially developed as an addition to the Global Education Team, and new last school year, the Book Club is composed of administrators, educators, and parents who share a passion for how literature can inspire and educate us all, and deepen cultural understandings. Anyone is welcome to join these educational, engaging, and scintillating conversations to role model lifelong learning for our BHS students!
The final Book Club gathering of the school year will be held in the BHHS Media Center. Interested participants will choose books from our new BHHS Learning Community Libraries. The LC Libraries were built with the purpose of creating more spaces throughout BHHS where reading is centered and accessible, beyond our amazing resources in the Media Center. During the final book club meeting of the year, participants will gather to discuss these choice novels in a way that models how students can engage in meaningful discussion, even when they all have not read the same books.
Preview and “speed date” some of the books that are part of the library. To check out a book from our LC Libraries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This will be the third BHHS Community Book Club meeting of the school year. Previously, the Book Club has read and discussed George Takei’s graphic novel They Called Us Enemy, about Takei’s family’s experience in the Japanese American internment camps during World War II. They also read This Book is Anti-Racist, by Tiffany Jewell, which examines the concepts of social identity, race, ethnicity, and racism.
