Same Page Online Discussion

Come together

While JMRL wasn’t able to host most of the events planned for the 2020 Same Page community-wide read, we can all come together online to talk about Jacquline Woodson’s Brown Girl Dreaming. Join us here on jmrlblog.com on March 31st at 4pm to share your thoughts with others in our largest JMRL book club to date! 

How to participate in the discussion

No login required! We’ll post numbered questions. In the comments, tell us what number question you’re answering and what you think. You can choose to post your own or to reply to a comment to start a conversation. JMRL staff will be facilitating and moderating the discussion.
