Spellbound is proud to join our local YWCA in the Stand Against Racism. On Friday, April 26th from 4:00 to 6:00pm, we will be holding a drawing for a gift certificate to Spellbound, as well as a free copy of one of our favorite books for getting the conversation about race started in your home or classroom: Let's Talk About Race, written by Julius Lester and illustrated by Karen Barbour.
Introducing the concept of race as only one component in an individual's or nation's "story," Julius Lester says, "I write because our lives are stories. If enough of these stories are told, then perhaps we will begin to see that our lives are the same story. The differences are merely in the details."
Visit Spellbound anytime between 4 and 6pm Friday April 26th to enter the drawing. No purchase necessary. Winner will be contacted by email.
