RISE Reads Book Club

A community-based book club themed around incarceration and reentry.

The intention of the RISE Reads book club is to create conversation, build empathy, challenge ones thinking, brainstorm together, and connect on a deeper level.

RISE selects a book to read at the beginning of each quarter based around the themes of incarceration, criminal justice, reentry, etc. We will email the titles to you and share them in our private Facebook Group. 

How you choose to read each book is up to you! Each title is a self-paced read.

At the end of each quarter, we will recap what we've read as a group over Zoom and eventually (circumstances-willing) in-person. If you don't complete the book by the end of the quarter, that's ok! We'd still LOVE for you to join the conversation! 

We also have a RISE Reads Facebook Group to keep a continuous dialog going of what we're reading!
