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 2 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.
