Teen Book Club 4: The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo

4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Grove Hall


The fourth book in our Teen Book Club series is Elizabeth Acevedo’s acclaimed coming of age novel, The Poet X. The School Library Journal called it “a stunning account of a teen girl's path to poetry.” Its heroine Xiomara Batista is a misfit in her largely Dominican community in Harlem; the story traces her dealings with her strict religious upbringing, her first forbidden crush and her triumph through her art. The Poet X is the winner of the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature, the Michael L. Printz Award, and the Pura Belpré Award.

Teen Book Club at Grove Hall is a place to encourage students to read, to read books by authors of color, and to read banned books. This club will be a place to build a sense of community and give students something to look forward to outside of school reading. We meet bi-weekly on Mondays.
