Bauder Book Talk: Nic Stone (ages 12 & Up) RG
Program Type:Author & Literary Events
MEET famed young adult author, Nic Stone as she shares the inspiration behind her critically-acclaimed novel Dear Martin and other featured works.
When we hear someone tell their story, we connect to them in a deep and more meaningful way. Author Nic Stone says that stories link us together; when we listen to the lives and experiences of people who are different from us, we’ll discover our common ground.
She says that sharing our stories is vital to doing the essential, necessary work of racial and social justice.
Bauder Book Talks by Howard County Library System is made possible by a generous gift from Dr. Lillian Bauder, a community leader and Columbia resident. Howard County Library System will present an annual endowed author event, known as Bauder Book Talks, for underserved students in grades 6-8 attending public middle schools in Columbia with high percentages of African American and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) students. Authors and titles selected are high-interest and high-quality on topics of social issues, equity, and related matters. Student participants have the opportunity to hear from and engage the author and receive a copy of the author’s book. The event honors the memory of Don Bauder, late husband of Dr. Lillian Bauder and a champion of civil rights and social justice causes.
Registration is required for every attendee.
