Kidliterate Book Club featuring
Charis Books and More, Tuesday, May 26 at 7pm
Join us for a wide-ranging conversation in a new kind of book club. We'll be reading one book a month (children's or young adult fiction). Titles will be very carefully selected. We'll seek out books that push the boundaries of what kidlit is "supposed to do."

Preference will be give to stories that some might call "edgy" or "controversial." Books that offer exposure to the world our kids are growing up in, as well as imaginary landscapes.

These will be books that might scare other parents. Books with "language" and "mature content." They may be "upsetting" books. The kind of books that "give kids ideas."

We like ideas.

We believe that books are the very best place for kids to encounter scary things and foreign concepts. We believe that books can help prepare kids to engage with the world around them. We believe kids are smart and resilient, great at asking tough questions. We believe they should.

But we also just like reading kids' books.

So come if you like amazingly good books! Come if you'd like to be introduced to titles you might not otherwise read! Come if you think books should stir the pot. Come for a new an way to screen your child's summer reading! Come if you want to argue with us!

This is a Charis Circle Whole Children, Strong Families Program. The suggested donation is $5.

Book Art with Steph Suggs
Charis Books and More, Thursday, May 28 at 7pm
This is a workshop with Steph Suggs on art journaling as self-care. Self-care can be a challenge for many of us as we fly through our busy lives everyday. The purpose of this workshop is to begin the practice of art journaling as self-care through a combination of simple book structure, writing, and playing with various art media. Most writers keep journals, and many artists keep sketchbooks. You need not be an artist or writer to practice this method of self-care. The work you do in your journal is for you. What the end product looks like does not matter. What is important is that you are able to question, process, release, embrace, and understand through the creation of a journal entry. The suggested donation is $10.
