Rebel ROOTS (Reading Our Own Truths) Book Club is created:
- To expose literature written by and about the multi-cultural community.
- To strengthen the community’s recognition of literature by reading a selection diverse books varying in genre from fiction to non-fiction, history to social commentary and autobiographies/biographies.
- Provide a forum for the exchange of constructive opinions on literature and culture.
The book list is here to open up a conscious stream of knowledge and with the group discussions engage the use of critical thinking skills.
