The next book is “The Measure” by Nikki Erlick, which explores the complexities of grief, identity, and self-discovery as the protagonist grapples with the loss of a loved one.
Stay tuned for registration details!

On July 10, 2023, the Lawyers for Literacy committee hosted a book club meeting to discuss Easy Beauty by Chloe Cooper Jones. Although it was a small group, the discussion was full of powerful insight, inspirational stories, and friendship.
On October 26, 2023, the Lawyers for Literacy Committee participated in Read for the Record which is coordinated by the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County. Participants read to elementary school students throughout Palm Beach County Schools. This year’s book selection was With Lots of Love by Jenny Torres Sanchez, illustrated by Andre Ceolin. It is a story about a girl who has moved to the United States from her home in Central America, away from everything she leaves behind and longs for – especially her Abuela. [Photo: Kalinthia Dillard]
