Suburban Mosaic Fosters Understanding Through Literature

Now in its ninth year, the 2012-2013 Suburban Mosaic theme focuses on making a difference.  Discussion groups are scheduled to begin in the fall of 2012 and continue through the winter. This years’ books are The Submission by Amy Waldman for adults, Will Grayson, Will Grayson by David Levithan and John Green for grades 9 and up; Claudette Colvin: Twice Toward Justice by Phillip Hoose for grades 5 – 8; How Tia Lola Learned to Teach by Julia Alvarez for grades 1 – 4; and Spork by Kyo Maclear for pre-K readers.

The vision of Suburban Mosaic is to “reach a deeper understanding of the various cultures that make up the suburbs of Cook and Lake County, Illinois, in order to reduce prejudice, racism, and the systemic marginalization of populations.”

View the books on display in the Youth Services and the Fiction/AV/Teen Services departments.
