Is literature one of your entry points for talking about challenging issues in the world today? Join Facing History and other educators for a unique event series which bridges literature and non-fiction to open new discussions on critical current issues.
Literature helps us explore ourselves and the world around us by sharing stories, raising questions, and presenting multiple perspectives. Pairing pieces of literature with non-fiction resources allow us to deepen exploration of critical themes. In this series for educators, literature has been chosen which explores themes of race, police violence and genocide, but also resiliency, hope, and the power of individual choices.
January 16, 2018, 4:00-7:00 pm: Night by Elie Wiesel, paired with Facing History and Ourselves’ Night Study Guide, to be held at the LA Museum of the Holocaust. Note: this session is a little longer since all participants will be invited to join a guided tour of the museum before we start the book discussion.
Join us for one session or the whole series. Each session will include a copy of the literature, a copy of related non-fiction resources from Facing History (as available in print), and a light dinner. Each session will be held at a different location in the general area of downtown Los Angeles.
- Individual registration will be $30 per meeting (workshop fee waivers do not apply to this special event series).
- A Book Club membership includes a copy of each of the books given at the workshop prior so that it can be read in advance if desired, and all four workshops. ($100 registration)
