Evergreen Park Public Library invites teens, ages 12 to 18, to embark on a month-long reading challenge for Black History Month. Teens and adults are also invited to An Evening with Dr. Natalie Page, Monday, January 30, at 6:30 pm to kick off a “lit” Black History Month. Saint Xavier University’s Chief Diversity Officer Dr. Natalie Page will present a thoughtful and intentionally curated list of books that amplify Black voices in literature. "Reading is the key to expanding your knowledge and experience of different cultural groups. During Black History Month take some time to read, reflect, and learn more about varying Black perspectives and experiences. This list highlights the wide range of Black history—including our struggles and victories; all with the intention of helping to expand your framework on Black history and its pronounced impact on our country and the world," said Dr. Page. Click here to register for An Evening with Dr. Natalie Page and preview her Black History Month recommendations or to sign up for the Teen Black History Month Reading Challenge.
