A book club for in-risk teen girls is about to shut down due to lack of funding. Here’s why Tanya Lee started it, and how you can help.
What does a library mean for you? For Tanya Marie Lee, it was her only sanctuary in an otherwise traumatic upbringing. In 2017, she launched A Room Of Your Own book club to share this safe space with teen girls living in poverty. Over 600 students have been served by the program so far, but with no stable sources of funding, she can’t keep it going in the new year without donations. We asked Tanya to share her story.
