Avalon teams up with St. Paul Public Library and its Read Brave program
Avalon has again partnered with the St. Paul Public Library for its Read Brave program. This year, students in grades 9-12 will read “How It Went Down” by Kekla Magoon, a novel about a black youth who is killed by a white man, but the facts of the case are few and far between. Add to that a cast of characters whose perspectives obscure as much as they illuminate the tragedy. The author will visit Avalon later in February to discuss the book and its implications.
