Read Brave 2021

Share Your Story

Read Brave uses the power of stories to build awareness and empathy on a theme relevant to our Saint Paul community. Read Brave connects readers of all ages to one another through the five books, their authors, programs, activities, and calls to action.

Stories have power. They allow us to connect more deeply, confront difficult truths, and heal together. Let’s elevate the voices in Saint Paul that need to be heard. Let’s listen to one another.
