Greenville Community Read

In 2020, Public Education Partners launched its Greenville Community Read. We believe that each of Greenville County’s more than 77,000 students deserves an equal opportunity to succeed, and we are committed to examining the ways we can – and must – do better to address systemic racism in education. The Greenville Community Read is a step in that direction. Each year, PEP provides 100 free books for the first 100 Greenville County Schools employees that register.
Who: All community members and educators are invited to attend. Virtual space is limited (up to 300 participants) and registration is required
When: One hour weekly for 4-5 weeks during the summer (2022 exact dates TBA)
Where: Virtually through Zoom, led by expert facilitators and PEP representatives
What: This year’s book will be Bruce Perry, MD, PhD and Oprah Winfrey’s What Happened to You?
