Read Brave: Owning Our Stories

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.

Stories have power. They allow us to connect more deeply, confront difficult truths, and heal together. Let’s listen to one another, especially the voices not often listened to or lifted up.

Pick up a “Share Your Story” postcard at your local library or download one here.

On the blank side, please share with us part of your story in whatever way works for you.

Postcards will be shared on social media and displayed on the Library’s website as a way to connect us, heal us, and build a better Saint Paul.
