Book Group: The Whole Story

Saturday, April 28th th at 6:30 PM
Anderson’s Bookshop Downers Grove
5112 Main St, Downers Grove


Join our salon dedicated to books, information and advocacy. Each session will include a 45-minute book discussion followed by 15 minutes of advocacy. Because of this teen generation’s engagement in current events we’ve decided to change our usual format up a bit this session!

The main book will be the adult biography, "My (Underground) American Dream" by Julissa Arce.

The companion book will be the YA biography, "Americanized - Rebel Without a Green Card" by Sara Saedi.



Adults with their favorite teen; adults by themselves or even teens by themselves, are welcome to join. Participants can read either book or both! We will offer family friendly snacks and beverages. This session is FREE to attend but space is limited so please call the store to RSVP (630) 963-2665. For your convenience, books may be purchased below (but your purchase is not required to attend).
