A new club on the Bolles Middle School Bartram Campus, the Bartram Bibliophiles, is continuing its mission to expand students’ awareness of diversity and historically marginalized groups.
The book club focuses on middle school-level books about diversity, equity and inclusion, written from the firsthand perspectives. Their club motto is “books open minds.” January’s book is “George,” by Alex Gino and February’s book is “Ghost Boys,” by Jewell Parker Rhodes. Students also plan to read “Maybe He Just Likes You,” by Barbara Dee, “Inside Out & Back Again” by Thanhha Lai and “The Goldfish Boy” by Lisa Thompson.
Esha Kasavaraju ’26 designed the club’s logo to demonstrate their mission.
