One City, One Book program

Tuesday, October 23, 2018

Come write out your feelings about The 57 Bus: A True Story of Two Teenagers and the Crime That Changed Their Lives, by Dashka Slater -- Kensington and El Cerrito's 2018 One City One Book selection. The 57 Bus is the true account of an agender teen set on fire by another teen while riding the bus in Oakland. This riveting, heartbreaking book delves into issues of race, class, gender, crime, and punishment, and will provoke thoughtful discussions on these topics from all who read it. Writing prompts and a safe space for writing and discussion will be provided. All are welcome. This program is co-sponsored by the El Cerrito Arts and Culture Commission.
