Join us as we continue to hold space to promote literacy, family and community! We will have brunch, FREE books for ALL ages and great discussion regarding black liberation, the current movement and more!

This month we will be discussing the book, turned stage play, "Bud, not Buddy". So, it's been four years since his mom died, and ten-year-old Bud Caldwell takes off from his third foster home in search of a better way to live his life. He's sick of being an orphan: unwanted, unloved, and all alone. On his own, he finds out how rough it is in Michigan in 1936, during the Great Depression. He meets many kind people along the way who help him complete his most awesome quest: to find the man that he thinks is his father. He's looking for a guy whose picture was on some old flyers for jazz concerts his mother kept around their house, so he doesn't have too much to go on. Oh, and did we mention that Bud is looking for a place to finally call home? Sounds pretty tough, right?

Bud thinks not.

Bud, Not Buddy is a children's novel that appeals to all ages written by Christopher Paul Curtis, published in 1999. The book received the 2000 Newbery Medal for excellence in American children's literatures. Christopher Paul Curtis was also recognized with the 2000 Coretta Scott King Award, an award given to outstanding African-American authors.[
