February 2018 Book Club

Hello Lars readers!  Can you believe we’re already diving into the February 2018 Book Club? Last February, the Lars team headed to Cuba, so naturally, we read about that unique, mystical country. This year, as South Korea gets ready to host the 2018 Winter Olympics, we chose an Olympic story like no other. Don’t Tell Me You’re Afraid by Giuseppe Catozzella is about a girl who loves to run, Samia Yusuf Omar. Living in war-torn Somalia, Samia struggles to train and realize her dream of running in the Olympics. Women and girls are threatened and unsafe if they are seen out of the home, much less viewed in public running in a t-shirt and shorts! This month, as you watch the world come together in an amazing way, read Samia’s story and remember the hopes, dreams, and struggles each athlete may have to face. And be sure to bring tissues.

Follow along with us on @larsbookclub, and share your thoughts on the book! We’ll have a mid-month post with discussion questions and artwork for you as well, so stay tuned.
