(November 14, 2019)

Georgia Southern University’s Lane Library has been selected to take part in the Great Stories Club, a national reading and discussion program for underserved teens. Lane Library was awarded a competitive grant offered by the American Library Association (ALA), with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, to participate in the program.

As part of the Great Stories Club series on “Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation,” Lane Library Interim Head of Reference and Instruction Vivian Bynoe will work with Anne Katz, Ph.D., associate professor of reading in the College of Education’s Department of Curriculum, Foundations and Reading, to read and discuss stories with a literacy leadership group at Hubert Middle School in the Savannah-Chatham County School System. The group will explore questions of race, identity, history and social justice. The books are curated around the theme, “Growing Up Brave on the Margins: Courage and Coming of Age.”
