Book to Art Club is your place for reading, discussion and art-making! All ages will read One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams Garcia.

  • In the summer of 1968, Delphine and her two younger sisters travel from Brooklyn to Oakland, California to spend a month with the mother they barely know. They discover that their mother, a dedicated poet and printer, is resentful of the intrusion of their visit and wants them to attend a nearby Black Panther summer camp.

Come together on Wednesday, August 2nd as we will discuss this story and the summer of 1968 and complete a poetic art project.  Register beginning Monday, July 3, at the Youth or Fiction desk to get your copy of the book.

The image representing this event in our slide show is titled “Loving Family” by April Wilson Harris.
