Join DC Council Member Tommy Wells for his Travelling Book Club! The featured book will be The Watsons Go to Birmingham - 1963. The Newbery Honor and Coretta Scott King Honor award-winner tells the story of the Watson Family and their trip from Flint, Michigan, to Birmingham, Alabama in the summer of 1963. Their ordinary interactions and everyday routines will be drastically changed after they experience the turmoil of the Civil Rights struggle firsthand.
