BAM! Books and Media Discussion, Sep 8th!


September's BAM meeting will be on September 8th. We're hoping to have another hybrid meeting, if the weather and COVID situation holds. Does anyone want to host the in-person, outdoor gathering? I could bring a folding table and a couple chairs if that helps.


We'll be discussing the importance and impacts of school boards as well as the upcoming school board elections. My understanding is that GAC cannot and will not endorse specific candidates. This will be a discussion of the issues at stake.


Here are a few resources I've tracked down, most of them from Mandi. Please add more resources that you find useful and inspirational!
