Virtual Teen Book Club

February 19 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Free
  • Love to read and talk about your favorite books? Join us for our new Low-Pressure Teen Book Club, presented by MCPL’s Teen Advisory Board. Log in at https://mcpl.events/teen-book-club

    This month we’ll be talking about Langston Hughes’ first book of poetry, The Weary Blues. Published in 1926 when the author was only 24, it was an immediate critical success. Hughes created a new form of poetry, called jazz or blues poetry, with vivid descriptions of the sounds and sights of a blues musician playing live. His poems address the pressing social issues of racism, inequality, and political oppression while also capturing and celebrating the beauty and uniqueness of the African-American community in Harlem.

    Feel free to read any or all of the poems in the collection, which is available on hoopla: https://www.hoopladigital.com/title/14813008

    You can also bring the book you’re currently to chat about. We’ll plan to discuss other recent reads and favorite books, as well.

    This is a monthly club, so if you have ideas for future discussions, feel free to let us know!
